What is Crew?

Freshers’ is back and we need your help. Recruitment is still open for you to take part Freshers’ Crew 2021, to help us welcome the new intake of Newcastle University first years. To make this week a success, we are relying on existing students to get involved as crew where you will be responsible for assisting new students and helping us run events, in addition we will be relying on some of you to take on additional roles as supervisors and chiefs to help us organise the events.

You will get to experience the events and activities for free, making this an irresistible opportunity, especially for second years who may have missed out on their Freshers’ Week last year. You don’t have to have any previous crew experience to get involved, so if you’re keen, be sure you apply!
