Sodexo sees Northumbria Uni ranked in top 10 universities for facilities

Northumbria University Newcastle, one of the largest universities in the UK with more than 33,000 students from 135 countries, has been ranked in the UK’s top 10 universities for its facilities in the 2017 Times Higher Education Student Experience Survey.

The survey is based on the responses of more than 15,000 undergraduates rating their university across 21 measures. Students were asked to rate university facilities, including sports facilities, bars and shops on campus, and library facilities.

Student Living by Sodexo has been managing all of Northumbria University’s accommodation for the last year, with responsibility for over 3,300 beds in the University’s campus.

As part of its contract with the University, Student Living by Sodexo manages the Trinity Square accommodation village in Gateshead, which houses nearly a thousand students and features a library hub, fitness suite and sports pitches.

Damon Kent, Director of Campus Services at Northumbria University commented:

This is a great accolade for us, especially as it was voted for by students. To come in the top 10 from 122 other universities in the UK is a testament to the hard work of the facilities team at Northumbria, who have created a fantastic environment in which our students can live and learn.” 

A research-rich, business focused university, Northumbria University has a global reputation for academic excellence.
