A question that our team is often asked is “how early should I start searching for student accommodation in Newcastle?”


Well the quick answer is as soon as possible! Most letting agents in Newcastle will release details of their properties for rent for the following academic year towards the end of October of the current year.  At Roseworth we launched our 2016/17 lettings on Saturday 24th October 2015 with property viewings able to be booked from that date onwwards.


The advantage of getting your viewings scheduled for when properties are first released is the extensive choice of student accommodation this will give you, allowing you to find exactly the right property to suit your requirements. 


How to narrow the search for student accommodation


Before beginning your property search we would strongly recommend that you give consideration to exactly what matters to your group – is it property size and location? Or possibly you really want a large living area for socialising, multiple bathrooms or a great outdoor space? 


If you need help deciding which area of Newcastle is right for you then take a look at our residential areas section where we profile popular student areas such as the City Centre, Jesmond, Heaton, Spital Tongues and Sandyford.  It’s all about deciding what is important to you – do you want to be within close walking distance of the university? Or possibly you want to be close to Osborne road in Jesmond and enjoy the the legendary student nightlife there?


You will also need to decide what type of property you are looking for – there is a full range of options ranging from houses, flats, townhouses, to purpose built student blocks.  If you need any guidance on what type of property would best suit your needs then please take a look at our property types section where we highlight key questions to ask to help make up your mind.


Once you have decided what matters most to your group, and have a your list of priorities agreed then you can kick off your search for the perfect property. 


Starting your hunt now will definitely mean that you get the best choice!
