Press release   •   Aug 27, 2015 15:29 BST

Northumbria University’s student accommodation has been voted second best in the country by national newspaper, The Telegraph.

The shortlist, which was compiled using the Top 10 Halls for 2015 according to the National Student Housing Awards, described Northumbria as a university where students were ‘bound to feel right at home, with something for all budgets and personalities.’

Northumbria was also shortlisted in the National Student Housing Survey Awards for its accommodation providing the best value for money and offering the best student community.

Last year, Northumbria opened its newest student accommodation at Trinity Square in Gateshead. Trinity Square offers almost 1,000 beds with stunning views across the NewcastleGateshead skyline and rooftop leisure facilities, immediately above a cinema and supermarket with a range of bars, restaurants, independent retailers and coffee shops below.

The University offers over 5,000 study bedrooms across a range of top quality halls, both catered and self-catered. All of Northumbria’s residences, including Glenamara, Winn Studios and Claude Gibb, have superfast Wi-Fi internet access and are within walking distance of the vibrant city of Newcastle.

Alastair Reekie, Head of Student Accommodation, said: “We are absolutely delighted to discover that we have been rated second in the UK for our student accommodation in The Telegraph. These results are based on actual feedback from our students which is testament to the outstanding work done by the Campus Services teams and colleagues across the University.

“We are constantly striving to better our service and offer and aim to ensure that all students get the best possible experience during their time in Northumbria accommodation.”
