Union Square is home to 233 students from all corners of the world. It’s also part of our three Nido community in Newcastle, so like the other two Nido’s, you will be able to use all the facilities, which will allow you to meet even more people. We’re led by the students that live with us, so we know that having an in-house gym available 24/7, along with plenty of bike storage plus the fastest WiFi, are important to you. We listen to what you have to say while you’re living with us – from our award-winning house team to our social media crew. Just ask.
You’ve told us what’s important to you in your accommodation and we’ve made sure to include it in our Nido’s. All bills are included in your stay, the fastest WiFi and community places to make friends and socialise, plus a few more things…
We think a lot about the design of our facilities. Each space at Nido is fully furnished with little touches that make a positive difference to sustainable living. We want you to be able to enjoy every single facility, from community spaces to the laundry room.
