The city of Newcastle is situated in the northeast of England and played the part of an important shipbuilding and manufacturing hub of England during the Industrial Revolution. Today, Newcastle is a bustling metropolis with a plethora of cultures thriving at the same place. If you are in Newcastle, for any reason, you must make time to explore the different places and things that the city has to offer. If you are into music and concerts, you must visit the iconic venue of Sage Gateshead, even if you are not going to be attending an actual concert.
Another important centre of arts in Newcastle is the Baltic Centre which attracts visitors from all over the world. This was an old flour mill but has been turned into an eclectic art gallery building which is worth every minute that you spend here. If you still have a little appetite for art left, do make the Live Theatre your next destination. As the name suggests, the Quayside theatre is all about live performances, from stand-up comedy to brilliant plays!
For all the sports enthusiasts at Newcastle, a visit to St. James Park is almost mandatory. This stadium has been home to the Magpies since 1892 and when here, you can always enjoy an informative and interesting tour of the stadium!

Do you need a guarantor?
Without a UK rental guarantor, most landlords and agents will require you to pay the full year's rent upfront. We have partnered with Housing Hand who can provide you with a certificate of rental guarantee.
* Please note that additional charges apply for this service.
CANCELLATIONS PRIOR TO THE START DATE OF YOUR AGREEMENT
Once you have chosen your room, paid your holding deposit and digitally signed your agreement, your booking with Best Student Halls is confirmed. From this date, you will have to pay all amounts due under your agreement unless a replacement tenant is found for your room.
– All replacement tenants must be 18 years old or over and enrolled as a full-time student in a university or college. Where the accommodation has agreements with set universities, the replacement may be restricted to that university. Please check with your Residence Team.
– The replacement tenant must take over the agreement for your chosen room, at your agreed rate and term.
– The replacement tenant must pay their holding deposit and digitally sign their agreement before your cancellation will be processed.
– The replacement tenant, where reasonable, must provide a suitable Guarantor. The Guarantor must accept the Terms and Conditions set out in the agreement.
Once the process has been completed in line with the above, your cancellation will be approved. Your holding deposit will be retained as your cancellation fee, but all other payments made to us in respect of you upcoming tenancy will be refunded within 28 days.
