How much does rent cost in Newcastle?

Private student accommodation in Newcastle usually costs from £148 to £193 per week.

However, it’s worth noting that several factors decide the rent of student accommodation in Newcastle. These include the facilities and amenities that are provided to you, as well as the ownership of the property. Typically, student accommodation in Newcastle is privately owned by a landlord, a dedicated student accommodation provider such as Collegiate or owned by a university.

How much will I spend on bills in Newcastle?

On average, UK students in Newcastle will spend approximately £37 per month on bills. 

Luckily, when you book with Collegiate student accommodation in Newcastle, you’ll enjoy a range of money-saving benefits. All bills for utilities – electricity, gas and water – are included in your rent on a ‘fair usage allowance’. Not only that but hot water is available in your private en-suite 24 hours a day and heaters are controlled exclusively by tenants in their own living spaces. High speed internet and WiFi is included with your room and throughout the building – bedrooms also include an ethernet cable connection should you need one. So you know you can study with total confidence wherever you find the best space.

How do I pay for my student room in Newcastle?

You can make rent payments online using your credit or debit card via your Collegiate Portal account or by bank transfer – whichever you find easiest! Although if you’d like to pay by bank transfer, be sure to contact the Accommodation Management Team who will be more than happy to help you get that sorted.

You have the option to pay your rent in 1, 3 or 4 instalments. If you’re paying in one full instalment, the whole process can be completed quite quickly. However, if you’re opting for the flexibility of 3 instalments, it’s still super quick and easy, there’s just a few things for you to know. You will need a UK-based guarantor or you can Housing Hand as a guarantor – although note that Housing Hand does come with an extra charge, so check out their website for the full details. 

The flexibility of paying in 4 instalments is offered to students who’ll be relying on a student loan or grant to pay their rent. You’d still be expected to pay 4 weeks’ rent 10 days before your tenancy start date, and a larger instalment at the end of September – which is typically when loans and grants are paid in to students.

To help you keep on track of your finances while you’re studying, log in to your Collegiate account where you can download a full schedule of payment dates.
