Sandyford is a district of Newcastle upon Tyne, located in the east end of the city. It is bordered by the City Centre and the districts of Jesmond and Heaton.


Sandyford is a largely student dominated area of Newcastle upon Tyne due to its close proximity to the two Universities in the city: Newcastle University and Northumbria University.

It is similar to both Heaton and Jesmond in terms of street layout and architecture. The housing stock is mostly of red brick Victorian terraced housing, and many of these are Tyneside flats. Towards the South of the area there are some light industrial businesses, and towards the South-East the residential streets run steeply down towards Jesmond Dene. Sandyford is located at the end of Jesmond's Osborne Road and is serviced by the Jesmond Metro station.[1]

Sandyford is home to FPP Brand Communications - the European award winning communications agency,[2] and several local businesses, including a shop, an Italian bistro, an Italian restaurant, three sandwich shops, an award winning fish'n'chip shop, a Chinese takeaway, a Post Office and a car garage. The suburb also hosts four hairdressers.
