Gorgeous accommodation in Newcastle, with en suites, studios and social spaces equipped with all the essentials.
Situated just a short walk from both Northumbria University and the University of Newcastle, The Shield is in a prime location for getting to university. Plus, you’ll have access to entertainment on tap with the city centre is just an 11 minutes’ walk away – get to all of your favourite shops, bars and restaurants in no time. And, for those days you’d like to get out of the city, the train station is also a short strolling distance from us.
We offer a variety of en suites in shared student apartments and en suite studios fitted out with all of the essentials for your stay. Plus, prices on our studios are per room rather than per person so sharing is a great option, at no additional charge!
With an amazing selection of social spaces including a gym, cinema room, multi-media room, courtyard and study spaces, it’s no wonder why The Shield was voted The Best Social Experience in the UK by StudentCrowds’ Student Accommodation Awards!
