      Accommodation

      I live in Jesmond which is a wealthy student area in Newcastle. It’s very popular for students as it has great shops, restaurants and bars. It is expensive for rent but it is worth it for the clean, safe area. It’s 30 min walk to uni and the metro runs through which most people use. We have a Waitrose, Sainsbury’s and Tesco’s which are very handy. I would live here again most definitely but next year I will be moving to a different area solely to save money.
