Union Square is home to 233 UK and international students every year. Ideally located in the student quarter of Ouseburn, you'll be able to have a lie-in as you'll be close to your university.
Whether it’s the city’s friendly vibe or exciting student atmosphere there’s a good reason that students from across the globe flock to Newcastle. Art, history, music and a buzzing nightlife are never in short supply here, while the charming, welcoming feel has everyone feeling like a local in no time.
Union Square is a student home tailor-made for work and play. Choose from spacious studios or one of our 4 to 6 person apartments and you’ll have access to a new 24-hour gym, a cinema, Wi-Fi and bike storage and other features.
