Please note that Nido Union Square will be undergoing renovations from September 2022, and therefore will not be open for bookings for the 2023/24 academic year.

We apologise for any inconvenience to our current residents who wish to rebook, and any disappointment for new enquiring students.

For those interested in remaining with or joining Nido in 2022, we do have two great residences nearby; The Bridge and Stepney Yard. Both buildings offer a variety of room types, stylish communal areas, a close-knit community, and are perfectly located for getting to lectures at Northumbria and Newcastle University.

To enquire further or make a booking, please get in touch.
