Newcastle is a relatively compact student-friendly city – 1 in 6 residents are students and the city is regularly voted the top student city in the UK.
As such a student-focused city, there is always lots for you to do. Whether you want to go shopping, visit a gallery, make use of our excellent sporting facilities on campus, or relax in the Students’ Union. The Students’ Union has lots of different societies and clubs for you to join, you can see a full list of the current societies and clubs here.
The city also offers a great base from which to explore the North of the UK. Scotland is less than an hour away and you can get a direct train to Edinburgh from Newcastle station. Alternatively, you can even get a train to London, with fast trains taking 3 hours.
