Newcastle is one of the most popular cities in the UK for international students. It’s friendly, easy to get around, and has a fantastic social life – feel free to browse our area guide to familiarize yourself with what Newcastle has to offer. Plus, of course, Northumbria and Newcastle Universities have an enviable range of courses.
We’ve built up many years’ experience in helping international students (undergraduates and post-graduates) find rented accommodation.
We understand your needs – good transport, central location – and your concerns, such as legal stuff and hidden costs. We welcome students from all backgrounds, all countries and all cultures we’re here to help you find the perfect property!
At letslivehere, we make the renting process clear and simple, so you know exactly what you’re agreeing to. We have translation services to make it even easier. We can even arrange to store your luggage while you decide where to live. We’ll take you to different properties and help you decide which one is right for you.
If you can’t view a property, then don’t worry. We can send photographs, floor plans, videos or even FaceTime or Skype you when we’re at the property.
It can be difficult to understand the laws and regulations that may apply to you when deciding to study in the UK. Before securing your property we will perform Right to Rent checks to ensure you can legally rent. You must provide us with a valid Residence Permit for the duration of your stay, and sometimes, as well a copy of your University acceptance letter.
As many international tenants don’t have access to a UK based guarantor, rent is usually payable in advance, but this will be discussed with you by the lettings team as every case can vary.
