The Ouseburn Valley

We are very lucky at Portland Green Student Village to be based just a few minutes' walk from Newcastle city centre in the vibrant and unique Ouseburn Valley, recently named one the hippest places to live by The Times Newspaper.

The Ouseburn Valley is Newcastle's bustling cultural hub, so whether you're seeking out a pioneering music scene, great bars and eateries, flourishing creative networks, or its abundant local heritage, the Valley has something for everyone.

There are possibly too many great places on our doorstep to mention, but here are a few of our favourites, which we are sure will make your stay at Portland Green even better.


We are confident you will love our unique location and enjoy being part of Newcastle's best kept secret – The Ouseburn Valley.
