Sitting just outside of Newcastle’s city centre is Jesmond- long favoured as a pleasant suburb for the citys professional elite, and now the most sought after student housing area in Newcastle.

Journey time to both universities on foot is approximately 10-20 minutes depending on where you live and how heavy the previous night was! There are also two metro stations in Jesmond and both will get you to Haymarket in a matter of minutes.

Running through the middle of Jesmond is Osbourne Road. Osborne Road is lined with funky bars, chic hotels and great restaurants. Always busy and much loved by locals and students alike, the nationally (in)famous avenue’s highlights include Bar Blanc, Spy Bar and Bar Belize.

There are also many places to eat in the area- Scalinis at the top of Osbourne Road and breakfastastic Kitschn on Acorn Road are just a couple of the best.

Being so popular Jesmond is inevitably the most expensive place to live for a student in Newcastle – rents are usually between £70 and £90 pppw but can go as high as £ 100+ per person per week. These prices though reflect the high level of services available to the Jesmond student community and also the ideal location of Jesmond in relation to the centre of town.
