Opto – City Road

Opto City Road

Designed to provide an unparalleled student experience, Opto Student Newcastle comprises 227 contemporary self-contained studio apartments.

The development contains a selection of highly desirable on-site facilities including a gym, reception, games/TV room, cinema/meeting rooms, a courtyard and a separate outdoor events venue that will contain a large communal kitchen and two dining rooms on the ground floor. The second floor will have plenty of space to host events and a roof terrace.

Opto Student Newcastle has been carefully engineered to provide students with everything they need within a safe and contemporary environment.

Students will be able to make the most of the development’s waterfront setting by utilising the outhouse’s outstanding, river facing roof terrace.

Its split-level design will provide a functional and adaptable space. A private kitchen and dining area allows students to host dinner parties while the function room will have a permanent DJ booth – perfect for social events.
