From your new home, it’s a 10-minute walk to Newcastle University – or slightly longer, if you stop at Central Bean Coffee House for an espresso and a freshly baked croissant en route. Use the nearby bus stops to reach Northumbria University in 13 minutes, or to explore the rest of the city on weekends. If you prefer, St James metro station is also just five minutes’ walk away.
When you’re not busy with classes or trips across Newcastle, come home to your fully-furnished apartment. Relax with a good book on your bed, curl up in front of your favourite Sky TV shows, or get motivated with a session in the on-site gym. Make the most of your all-inclusive utilities by taking as long as you like in your ensuite shower, then use the high-speed Wi-Fi to finish your assignments at your bedroom desk.
After submitting your work, head to the common room to catch up with your friends. Drop your clothes off at the laundry on the way, then bag a spot on the sofa, grab a gaming console and see if you can beat the highest scores.
Later, stock up on exotic ingredients at Chinatown’s Wing Hong Supermarket, then cook something delicious for dinner in your apartment kitchen. In summer, you could even pack a picnic and eat alfresco in Leazes Park instead. However you spend your time at Verde, contents insurance and state-of-the-art-security will give you absolute peace of mind.
