Shane always kept us informed with all things necessary and always available to speak to, even on weekends. Made my university experience ten times better. Rebooking for next year."

Hritik, PGSV, Newcastle

"☆☆☆☆☆ Portland green is the place to stay. If I could give them more than 5 stars I would. I lived in Rosedale Court and Bryson Court and the facilities are excellent. There is always something going on in the village and social room, I always enjoyed the quiz nights and the free cocktail parties where lush. All of the staff are friendly and always go out of their way to help you."
