What is Give It A Go?
 
Give it a Go is an activities programme run by your Students’ Union which offers you the opportunity to try something completely new, learn new skills, and meet new people.  Whether you are running around with a paintball gun, riding a horse or learning a new language, there really is something for everyone!  
 
Have a browse of our activities on offer, and remember, our  sessions are for ALL Newcastle University students and staff.  It’s a great chance to try something new without committing to it for the whole year! Remember you don't need a sports centre membership or any experience!

Please Note:
 
We highly recommend you book EARLY to avoid disappointment, as many activities do sell out quickly.  We can give refunds for activities where we have been notified a week or more in advance, as this gives us time to re-sell the ticket.
