About this property

The Shield is an ultra-chic student accommodation located on Clarence Street, Newcastle upon Tyne. It is only an 8-minute walk from Northumbria University and a short walk from Newcastle University, INTO Newcastle University as well as Newcastle College. It offers good amenities such as an outdoor courtyard, cinema room, gym, study area, social space, vending machines, bike storage and Wi-Fi. It offers en-suite rooms and studio apartments.

One can choose between an en-suite room in a shared apartment or a studio apartment at The Shield Newcastle. In an en-suite room, you will have your personal bedroom with en-suite shower room study and storage area. However, you will have a shared kitchen and living area. So, you can try out new fashion hacks in your room and show it to your flat mates in the living area. This Newcastle student accommodation also offers studio apartments, wherein you will have your private fully furnished bedroom with en-suite shower room, study, storage, fully fitted kitchen and living area. So, you can invite friends over and binge-watch horror movies with them in the living area or make a quick snack for yourself in the kitchen area. The Shield Newcastle provides an outdoor courtyard where you can relax with friends in the bright sunshine or head to the on-site cinema room to get a movie theatre type feeling while watching a movie with your friends and flat mates. The Shield student accommodation also provides an on-site gym where you can reduce your weight or study in silence in the study area. The Shield Newcastle also offers a huge social space where you can catch up with fellow residents or grab a snack at anytime from the vending machines available on-site. One doesn’t need to search around to find secure parking places as The Shield student accommodation provides an on-site bike storage facility or utilize the on-site Wi-Fi to complete their research work online or video call home to talk to your loved ones. Sleep peacefully as The Shield Newcastle keeps its resident students safe by providing CCTV.

International students in Newcastle must visit The Castle to view the remains of the 12th century stone fortress and get a spectacular view of the city. One can also go to Newcastle Cathedral to see the beautiful interiors of the church. Others, who are not History buffs, can go to Newcastle City Centre. 

Enjoy Mexican fast food with friends and classmates at the Zapatista Burrito Bar which is near to The Shield student accommodation. Play a game of darts while slowly sipping on your beer with friends and flat mates at The New Bridge. There's a Tesco Express around too. So, all your grocery and snack needs will be easily met!

Get ready for a chilled out student-environment and life at The Shield Newcastle.

FAQs

When can I move in?

A few weeks before arrival, you will be invited to book a move-in slot by your accommodation team.

What is the cancellation policy?

Book online until the end of 31st July, without seeing the accommodation first, and we run a 72-hour cooling-off period, allowing you to cancel your booking within 72 hours of paying your booking fee. Bookings made from 1st August for the forthcoming academic year have a 24-hour cooling off period. To cancel, email us.

Can we book as a group?

Of course.

How do I book?

It's easy - Just click on 'Book Now' button and come through to our online booking system. 

What deposit do I need?

To secure the room, you only need to make the booking until the cooling off period of 24 hours. Post that you can make the booking by paying the booking fee. The booking fee is non-refundable but the good thing is that you'll get it back if nothing's owing for damage or outstanding rent at the end of your tenancy. Deposits are fully secured by 'Tenancy Deposit Scheme' in England and Wales or the 'My Deposits' scheme in Scotland.

Can I have pets?

Sorry, pets of any shape and sizes are not allowed.

Do I need a TV license?

Whether we supply the TV or you bring your own or watching it through 4TV or BBC iPlayer, you'll need to have a valid TV licence unless we tell you we're covering it. 

Am I allowed to have guests over?

We're all grown ups here, so of course, occasional overnight guests are allowed. Please don't invite someone to live more than three consecutive nights through, and always check with your flatmates first that they're okay with extra house guests.

Will my student flat be cleaned?

Your student room and any shared areas within your apartment will be spotlessly cleaned when you arrive, and some of our tenancies include complimentary cleaning throughout your time with us.

Can I smoke inside my accommodation?

The property is smoke-free and this includes all types of E-cigarettes. Smoking is not allowed in any private and communal areas. Designated smoking areas can be found outside of the building.

How do I setup my internet connection?

You'll have a broadband, covering the whole building.

Are my possessions insured?

Rest assured that every single booking comes with free content insurance with Endsleigh Insurance. To upgrade your insurance, contact Endsleigh directly.

Is parking available for visitors?

It is located centrally, close to good public transport links and other facilities, so you should be able to get around easily without a car.

How do I collect my post?

The post can be delivered directly to your door by Royal Mail or collected from on-site post boxes. Larger parcel deliveries are accepted at the reception, but we accept no liability for losses or damages.

Is there laundry on the site?

Yes, so please don't bring any portable washing machines with you! There is on-site laundry.

Is there a charge for using Debit/Credit card?

International Students paying with a credit card or Non - EU debit card will have a 2% charge on the total amount being paid. However, there is no charge for payments using a UK or EU debit card.

Can I stay in my room over the summer holidays?

We will try and accommodate requests for summer student accommodation extensions when possible. 

Do I need to move out over the Christmas & Easter holidays?

No, your room is yours for the duration of your tenancy. You only need to move out of the room at the end of the agreement.

Will my room be inspected?

Your room/apartment will be fully inspected at least three times during your tenancy. During these inspections, we check for cleanliness, damage and for missing items.

At each inspection, you will be told if there is to be a charge for putting anything right. You will be invoiced immediately for recharges for the first two inspections and on the final inspection, a deduction will be made from your deposit.

The recharges for cleaning, damages and missing items can be found in the Tenancy Handbook.

What if my student loan is late?

If your student loan is late, contact the accommodation team at the property as they will be able to advise you.
