I've been living in true student Opto for one year and a half now. It is a really great accommodation. The rooms are fantastic, the common areas are spacious and beautiful, the roof terrace has an amazing view of the Quayside and the team is amazing. Maintenance issues always get resolved quickly, the building is always tidy and the staff are always eager to help you. It is a great place, I highly recommend it.

The best place to live in Newcastle! Great location in heart of Newcastle, amazing building with stylish design, plenty of communal areas to hang out with friends. Great gym and breath taking view from the roof terrace.

I've had the best experience for the six months I've been at opto. Big thanks to Laura, Sam and Diane. I've had a warm welcome, excellent conversation and service. Loved the décor and how clean the building always was. Would definitely recommend.
