Covid-19 Hub

An Update


Summertime is officially on its way and restrictions are easing at long last!

We can finally go outside and meet in groups of six without being arrested (unless you’re committing a crime). We still have loads going on at NUSU and will be taking a blended approach to our activities, and we’re still organising loads of online events for those of you who might not be in Newcastle at the minute, or those of you who might not want to mingle just yet. You can see all our activities through Give It A Go, Go Volunteer, and our fantastic clubs and societies around this website.


The hub will keep you up to date with the most recent NUSU/Newcastle University Covid updates, as well as any guidance on the lockdown roadmap. If you have any concerns or questions, feel free to get in touch with your Sabbatical Officer team!

Activities Officer 2020-21

Please note the NUSU building will be closed from Friday 2 to Monday 5 April 2021.

NUSU building is open and we have lots of precautions in place to keep you safe. Enter the building by the main entrance on King’s Walk where you will be met by a member of the NUSU team who can help answer any questions you might have. There is a one-way system operating throughout the building which is clearly marked with floor arrows and there are hand sanitizer stations positioned regularly throughout.

The NUSU Building & Study Cluster, on Floor 2, houses 48 computers available for personal study Monday to Friday 10am-5pm and can be booked via the University Computer Cluster booking page

If you are a little peckish you might want to head to the Co-Op using the entrance on King’s Road (open 8am-6pm Monday to Friday) or make use of their Deliveroo service. The Merchandise Shop re-opened on Monday 26 April and can be visited Monday-Friday 10am-2pm.

More information will be added to this page in due course and our latest news and announcements can be found on our social media channels. Please use the links below to access Covid related service and support.
