“We are delighted that planning consent for this exciting new development has been granted. The project forms an important part of Unite Students‘ ongoing regional development plans. “Our core purpose at Unite Students is providing our students with a ‘Home for Success’. This means helping them achieve more from their time at university, whether that is academic success, personal growth or employability. “Newcastle is an exciting university city attracting students from across the UK and internationally. As well as easing pressure on private residential housing in the area this new development will provide an important contribution to the local economy.”
