You’ll be perfectly placed in the middle of the city centre when you live at Vita Student at Westgate, so you’ll be able to get to class at Northumbria or Newcastle University in no time. Rent a bike from the free cycle hire, or hop on a bus and you’ll be to either campus in around 15 minutes. Walk home after evenings spent by the river or out in Newcastle’s bars and music venues like Sage Gateshead, just over the Gateshead Millennium Bridge. The train station and metro are a moment’s walk from your door so exploring further afield is simple.
When the time comes to get on with your studies, return to Vita Student at Westgate and head to your studio where you can sit in your study area and log onto the 250MB Wi-Fi free from distraction. Your home is tastefully decorated in neutrals with glossy fitted cabinets and artwork adding warmth. Enjoy a snack at your breakfast bar, or relax on your bed watching the 40-inch flat screen Smart TV. Use your private, boutique-style shower room to freshen up any time you like.
The studios are cleaned monthly – just one of the perks of the all-inclusive rent that also covers your utilities, contents insurance and TV license. Security staff are on hand 24/7 and secure fob entry will give you complete peace of mind.
After class, spend your downtime using the on-site gym or hanging out with fellow students in one of the large common areas. There’s a café-bar feel to communal lounges with couches and cinema areas with squashy bean bags so you can watch your favourite movies in comfort. When there’s an assignment deadline looming, use the tables and chairs to hold a study group or huddle and bear in mind that the residence team are always available to answer your questions.
