Head through the city, passing uni, shops and galleries on your way to Town Moor Park, just 15 minutes from your home at Quay Point. Watch cows graze in the city’s gem — boasting more space than New York’s Central Park. Closer to home, admire the bridges that span the river Tyne as you walk around the cool bars and restaurants of the Quayside. At nightfall, enjoy a drink as the view comes to life. Watch Gateshead Millennium Bridge illuminate and get lost in the reflections of the city’s lights on the water.
It’s easy to get around Newcastle and living at Quay Point means you’re a couple of minutes’ walk from Northumbria University, or take the metro and be in class at the University of Newcastle in no time. Explore further afield by heading to the beach to walk on golden sands or hopping on a train to seek adventure in the Pennine mountains.
But you’ll want to save plenty of time to hang out in your new home. When you come back to Quay Point, you’ll be rushing to the common room on the ground floor to catch up with friends and swap stories about your day. Drop your books on the fitted desk in your room, then freshen up in your ensuite before heading to the shared kitchen to make yourself a bite to eat.
The kitchen has all the equipment you need. There’s even a lockable cupboard where you can store your groceries. As soon as you’re finished eating, lounge in the comfy living area, watch TV and socialise with your housemates.
When it’s time to get on top of your washing, the on-site laundry comes in handy and the friendly management and maintenance teams are happy to help with queries. There’s also 24-hour CCTV and secure door entry for your peace of mind. Managing your money is easy too, with all-inclusive rent covering your utilities, Wi-Fi and contents insurance.
