We realise that alongside your academic life, you will be managing your day-to-day life, including money and budgets, living in a new city or country, and your relationships, friendships and family responsibilities. From time to time when juggling such demands, specialist advice and support is invaluable for all of us. The services that we provide complement those provided within your academic faculty. However, for many types of support – around disability issues, faith issues, counselling and mental health support, finance, welfare issues and international student support – the University has also set up a range of central Student Support and Wellbeing services.
At Northumbria, we understand that where you live is a big aspect of your student life. That’s why we make sure you shape your experience from start to finish. When applying for accommodation, you can select the exact building, flat and room based on real online availability. Once you’ve found the perfect room for you, you can confirm your booking online within minutes.
