Introducing The Shield

Overview:

The Shield student accommodation is a fun and modern student accommodation centre for students looking for a home away from home while at university in Newcastle.

Location:

You can find The Shield student accommodation at Clarence Street in Shieldfield, just off the corner from the town centre. Its strategic location makes it just a few minutes' journey from the University of Newcastle and Northumbria University. The River Tyne, Shieldfield Park, district markets, and tourist attractions for fun-filled outings are just a short distance away.

Features:

The centre offers a great balance between private and communal spaces like a cinema room, gym area, courtyard, study room, and lounge area. They host social events as well which gives students a great opportunity to mingle with their counterparts. Other amenities include a laundry room, a vending machine, a bike storage area, a television, and high-speed WiFi.

Room Type:

The en-suite rooms in this property come with a bed, shower space and a shared kitchen area whereas the studio rooms come with a private kitchen and bathroom space, study, and storage area. A great perk is that they charge per room so in case, you decide to have a friend share your room, you will be paying for just the room and not per head!

Due to the COVID-19 restrictions, I couldn't return home, and to be in a different country and away from my loved ones during these very scary times brought immense anxiety and concern. However The Shield's staff removed all my worries and made me feel li

The Shield FAQs

A few weeks before arrival, you will be invited to book a move-in slot by your Accommodation Team. This can be booked via our student portal once we've let you know check-in slots are available.

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 completing the booking. Bookings made from 1st August for the forthcoming academic year have a 24-hour 'Cooling-Off' period. To cancel, write to or email the Accommodation Manager at your chosen location.

Absolutely! Floors, flats and room numbers are available to select during the online booking process.

Of course! For locations with shared student apartments, group booking can be completed easily online. One member of the group just needs to register and when asked to 'Create a group booking' , give the group a name and log in. Complete everyone's personal details. When done, the rest of the group have 24 hours to register, select 'Join a group booking' and that's it - your perfect flatshare is secured!

Your Tenancy Deposit is payable 10 days before the start of your Tenancy Agreement. The amount varies across our locations so look at each building individually for details. The good news is that you will get the Tenancy Deposit back if nothing is owing for damages or outstanding rent at the end of your stay.

We want you to love your time living with us but there may be times when we don't always get it "right". We take all complaints seriously and will try our best to fix any issues first time.

Sorry, pets of any shape or size aren't allowed.
