Newcastle Share Housing and Room Rentals

As part of the Newcastle group on Couch Surfing (an online community of travellers willing to host, wanting to be hosted, or wanting to travel together and do fun things) I often see newly arrived folk wanting a place to live for short or long term, sometimes international students here for a semester, sometimes people relocating here for work.

Here are some useful share housing links;

A common suburb for students and student accommodation is Jesmond (and surrounding suburbs) due to the proximity to the University of Newcastle. It is, approx 10km west of the Newcastle city center. Jesmond is close to a shopping centre, a pub, and main bus routes.
