Newcastle University have been ranked in the top 10 healthiest Universities in research undertaken by mystudenthalls.com. Scoring a total of 16 points, just 2 points away from first place, Newcastle has beat its reputation for being the party capitol as the university is recognised for all the sober activities that take place throughout campus.

With one-in-five students identifying as being completely sober, there is a shift in cultural ideas of student life. This has been greatly reflected in the success of the sober Fresher’s Week activities. The success of these were also reported on by BBC Today: watch the report at

With four out of the five research questions set by mystudenthalls.com relating to Students’ Unions, Newcastle University Students’ Union is recognised for providing a wide range of clubs and societies catering for health conscious students. NUSU is quoted to have ‘a strong programme of events and societies for those who identify as non-drinkers. Its Sober Socials offer a dedicated and supportive space for those who want to let loose without hitting the bar’ (https://www.mystudenthalls.com/news/the-uks-healthiest-universities-2019/).

Our previous semester saw the return of Mission: Nutrition, a campaign headed by the Athletic Union Officer, Maggie Elstob, providing students with the opportunity to collect a free healthy breakfast from their Sports Centre and the Students’ Union before their lectures or training sessions. Welfare and Equality Officer, Jack Green, has also kept students fuelled through this exam period with free fruit.
