The Foundry Student Accommodation is the perfect base for exploring everything Newcastle has to offer. The exciting nightlife is just one part of why the city is so popular with students; there is so much more to see and do during your studies.

Shieldfield is right on the edge of Newcastle City Centre and living at The Foundry means you can easily explore the bordering suburbs. Jesmond offers food and drink on Osborne Road as well as the relaxing haven of Jesmond Dene. Heaton has a great range of bargain restaurants and cafes ideal for students as well as Heaton Park for green spaces and sports facilities. The Ouseburn area of Newcastle is famous for chilled out bars and exciting music venues; a must-visit in the summer months. Head down to the Quayside and you’ll be greeted by the world famous sights of the Tyne Bridges, The Sage music centre and The Baltic art gallery.

Newcastle has a fascinating history and the evidence is everywhere – visit Roman Ruins at Hadrian’s Wall, the medieval Castle Keep in the City Centre, see Grade I listed Jacobean buildings, marvel at the Georgian architecture on Grey Street and Greys Monument or brave the Victoria Tunnels in the Ouseburn area – used as an air raid shelter in WWII. 

Situated within easy reach of the Northumberland Countryside and the Coast, Newcastle is in the perfect location for exploring North East England by bus, train or car.
