Northumbria University is based in the centre of Newcastle-upon-Tyne. It is spread over two campuses, City Campus and Coach Lane, both of which have recently undergone a £135m development and renovation.

City Campus West and the newly developed City Campus East are located in the heart of Newcastle upon Tyne, two minutes’ walk from shops, bars, and clubs. Coach Lane is situated three miles outside the centre and can be accessed via the free university bus service.

Each site has its own accommodation and facilities. In September 2010 a brand new £32m Sports Facility opened at City Campus West.

Newcastle is renowned for its student vibe, with over 40,000 students studying in the city, it’s no wonder MSN voted Newcastle as “UK’s Best University City” in 2009 and in 2010. Whether you’re into bars, clubs, restaurants, shops, museums, galleries or exploring the region’s beautiful countryside and coastlines, there really is something for everyone.

RANDOM FACT: The first public demonstration of the light-bulb was given by its inventor Joseph Swan on 3rd Feb 1879 at a lecture theatre in Newcastle, therefore the first public building in the world lit by electric light? In 1881 Mosley Street in Newcastle became the first street in the world to be illuminated by electric light.


The best way to reach out to any institution is through social media by contacting current students and alumni. Whilst NAS Education are more than happy to introduce you to other students that have applied from Malaysia, we have collated these links to help you along.






Northumbria University can house most first year UK undergraduates from outside the local area and new overseas students who require accommodation and apply in good time. Some UK postgraduates can also be offered accommodation. Because priority is given to new students when offering University rooms, most second and third year students live in privately rented accommodation of which there is a plentiful supply in Newcastle.  University residences provide a great environment for UK and overseas students to mix. Students have a unique opportunity to develop culturally as well as academically, as there are students from around the world living in our residences.
