When you choose to make The Shield your home, you’ll be setting yourself up for an easy commute to class. Walk eight minutes to Northumbria University, or 20 minutes to Newcastle University. A short stroll from your door you’ll find a supermarket to pick up essentials, cafés, bars and one of the city’s vibrant art spaces, The Biscuit Factory. For a change of scene after a few hours spent at your desk, walk 15 minutes’ south to the river, or 15 minutes’ west to the city centre.
Be among the first to enjoy the top class facilities of your student accommodation. Make friends in the common space, watching TV or unwinding in the games area. Set up movie nights in the cinema room or stay active and on top of your game by working out in the gym. Chill out on sunny afternoons in the courtyard. Take your books to one of the multiple study spaces if you want to make progress on those ever-pressing assignments. There’s Wi-Fi throughout so you can stay connected wherever you go.
Retreat to your own space to gather your thoughts or catch up on sleep. Pick a self-contained studio or an ensuite double room with access to a shared kitchen, depending on what you prefer. Either way, you’ll have your own bathroom and study space. Keep your wardrobe in order by using the card-operated laundry. Everything’s taken care of with secure bike storage, CCTV and social events planned by the friendly management team.
