This was our 2nd visit-even better than the first; service was excellent -reception staff were all approachable and friendly; rooms were clean and toilet and shower facilities were clean, in good working order and well maintained. The breakfasts were first class-the introduction of 'smoothies' was a real innovation. We really enjoyed our stay.

I thoroughly enjoyed my 2 night stay at Gibb Hall. The proximity of the accommodation to our conference, public transport and the city centre was ideal. The staff were so friendly and welcoming, the breakfast was delicious and the room impeccably clean. I would highly recommend Gibb Hall to anyone.

Once again we had a memorable time in Newcastle; rooms as ever we clean & comfortable; reception service was helpful and the catering staff were professional and welcoming. We could not fault the quality and choice of food-the breakfast was always a wonderful way to start the day.

Newcastle University accommodation

The university has nine accommodation halls spread throughout the city. The age of the accommodation varies, and is regularly refurbished as and when required. It should be understood that the university halls are designed primarily for students: not children or for adults expecting a high level of luxury. However, with this in mind, the halls do meet level of comfort that we expect most visitors to be happy with, and we will welcome any feedback where this is not the case.

History 

Newcastle upon Tyne History

Newcastle

Situated on the north bank of the River Tyne, the city developed from a Roman settlement called Pons Aelius, though it owes its name to the castle built in 1080, by Robert II, the eldest son of William the Conqueror. The city grew as an important centre for the wool trade and it later became a major coal mining area. The port developed in the 16th century and, along with the shipyards lower down the river, was amongst the world's largest shipbuilding and ship-repairing centres. These basic industries have now gone and the city is largely an administrative and cultural centre. Among its main icons are Newcastle Brown Ale, a leading brand of beer, Newcastle United F.C., a Premier League football team, and the Tyne Bridge. It has hosted the world's most popular half marathon, the Great North Run since 1981.

Newcastle universities

Newcastle University has its origins in the School of Medicine and Surgery which was established in Newcastle upon Tyne in 1834. The College of Physical Science was founded in 1871 and offered instruction in mathematics, physics, chemistry and geology to meet the growing needs of the mining industry, becoming the Durham College of Physical Science in 1883, and then renamed as Armstrong College in 1904. Both of these institutions later became part of the University of Durham, consisting of two Divisions, Durham and Newcastle, on two different sites.

Northumbria University has its origins in three regional colleges: Rutherford College of Technology, which was established by Dr John Hunter Rutherford in 1880 and opened formally by HRH The Duke of York in 1894, the College of Art & Industrial Design and the Municipal College of Commerce. Northumbria describes itself as a comprehensive university, it specialises in business, arts and design, computing, environmental science, built environment, applied healthcare, sports science and psychology, and teacher education.
