From Portland Green Student Village, you can walk to classes at Northumbria University’s City Campus East in just six minutes. It’s a nine-minute walk to the university’s Ellison Building, and a 20-minute walk to Newcastle University. To make the commute even shorter, keep a bike in the property’s safe storage, or make the most of the nearby bus and metro stops. On weekends, hop on the bus to Grainger Market and stock up on fresh local produce for the week ahead.
At the end of a busy day, stop to buy a sandwich from the on-site Subway on the way to your fully-furnished apartment, then put your feet up on the sofas in the lounge area and tune in to the TV. Head through to your bedroom and curl up for a nap on your three quarter sized bed, or spread your books out at your study desk and use the high-speed broadband to finish your assignments.
Afterwards, let off steam with a game on Armstrong Park’s all-weather tennis courts. Freshen up with a shower in your private ensuite, change into an outfit fresh from the laundry room, then spend the rest of the afternoon hanging out in the games area. Later, shop for essentials in the on-site Tesco Express, then invite friends and neighbours over for dinner in your apartment kitchen. With 24-hour security and all-inclusive rent, you can have fun knowing everything’s taken care of.
