Moving into Portland Green
The first step in preparing to move-in is completing a short induction via your new online account. This will just get you acquainted with the do's and don'ts of living at Portland Green.
It's essential that the induction is completed before you check-in otherwise moving into your room could be severely delayed. If you have any questions or concerns please contact our friendly accommodation team on 0191 484 0110.
Book an arrival slot
After completing your induction the next step is to book your arrival slot. Booking ahead ensures you can arrive at a time that's convenient to you, and we can anticipate what time you'll be with us. With well over 1000 students all arriving over a 4 day period letting us know when you'll get here helps us provide a smooth and speedy check-in for everyone.
Portland Green is very close to Newcastle city centre, just off the main central motorway. The accommodation reception address is:
Portland Green Student Village
Newcastle Upon Tyne
To navigate to PGSV's main entrance on Portland Road using a SatNav or Maps please use: NE2 1AQ
While parking isn't available during term time we have limited parking on check-in days.
Once you arrive directions to the main car park will be well signposted and we will have a team of car parking attendants on hand to help. Please have your building name, flat and room number ready.
After parking please make your way to the Village and you'll be directed to your check-in station where you can collect your keys.
Due to the limited number of spaces parking is only available on site for a limited time. Once you have finished unloading there are a number of pay and display car parks close by including:
- Argyle Car Park, on Argyle Street NE1 6PF
- Manors Multi-Storey Car Park, Trafalgar Street
- Quayside Multi Story Car Park NE1 2AY
Lastly, before moving in make sure you read through our Student Handbook. This will answer loads of your questions and prepare you for life as a Portland Green resident.
