Property features

Originally built in the 1930s for the General Electric company, this grand art-deco building now serves as a popular and modern choice for student accommodation in Newcastle.

Magnet Court is home to 112 students, living in either en-suite rooms in shared flats or in self-contained studio apartments. From this central base, you can walk to the Newcastle University and Northumbria University campuses in 10 minutes.

Outside, it’s worth looking up at the building now and then. You’ll see a series of terracotta panels that celebrate human energy and vigour - a small and beautiful piece of history. Back on the ground, there’s a Sainsbury’s Local supermarket at the bottom of the building.

Magnet Court is situated on a road called Gallowgate, part of Newcastle’s city-centre shopping district. It’s also a stone’s throw from St James’ Park, home to the city’s beloved Magpies - also known as Newcastle United Football Club.
