How Much Does Student Accommodation Cost in Newcastle?
Finding affordable student accommodation in Newcastle can be a challenge. With the rising cost of living, it’s now more important than ever to know exactly what you’ll be paying before signing a lease. In this blog post, we’ll take a look at the average cost of student accommodation in Newcastle and explore some of the factors affecting the price.
Average Cost of Student Accommodation in Newcastle
The average cost of student accommodation in Newcastle varies depending on the type of accommodation you choose.
For example, renting one bedroom in a shared house will typically cost around £125 per week. Whereas, a private studio apartment could set you back £150-£170 per week. If you’re looking for something more luxurious, such as a private bedroom with an en-suite and access to communal facilities, then you can expect to pay £200+ per week.
Factors That Affect Accommodation Costs
It’s important to consider whether bills are factored into the weekly rent. Project Student’s dedicated student apartments, Step House and Pitt Street both include all electricity, Wifi and water bills, to help make budgeting a lot easier.
Accommodation situated on or close to your university campus tends to be more expensive compared to housing that’s further away.
In Newcastle, there are lots of student accommodation options within easy reach of the city centre, including university halls of residence, private houses or flats and dedicated student accommodation. Popular student areas include Jesmond, Gosforth and Heaton. All three neighbourhoods are just beyond Newcastle city centre and offer plenty of shops, transport links, bars and restaurants.
Project Student’s dedicated student apartments are located within a short walk of Newcastle City Centre. Pitt Street Studios is close to St James’ Park stadium and within 14 minutes from Newcastle University and 18 minutes from the Northumbria campus.
There’s also Step House which is a short walk from bustling Quayside, where you’ll find an eclectic mix of bars and pubs as well as sweeping views across the River Tyne. Better still, it’s not far from Newcastle University – either walk the 0.9 miles or hop on a bus – and Northumbria is only 11 minutes walk away.
The amenities offered within your accommodation will also have an effect on the price. For example, if your chosen property includes access to communal facilities such as a gym, you expect to pay a little bit more in your weekly rent.
Type of Property
A new build fitted with the latest mod cons will tend to be more expensive. However, in university halls of residence or dedicated student apartments, you’ll often find on-site maintenance support, who can assist with any repairs or technical issues.
Look at the details as well as the headline rent
Don’t overlook the small print when it comes to student accommodation. For example, private landlords might appear to offer cheap rent, however, you need to bear in mind the additional charges that will come with WiFi, water and electricity bills.
It’s worth also considering the maintenance costs involved with a private flat or house. Tenancies for these types of properties are typically passed between students and so you can’t guarantee the house or flat will be left in the best repair when you come to move in.
Project Student prices are all-inclusive so you’ll know exactly what to expect with all-inclusive rent with no nasty surprises that might throw your budget out of balance. The properties are also built to a high spec with careful attention paid to the design and furniture, helping to make your living experience all the more comfortable.
