Tampons… reveal yourself

A message from your President, Katie

In March the Union lobbied the University to provide menstrual products on campus. Although it’s a long time coming, to say the least, we’re so excited to finally announce that menstrual care vending machines will be up and running in six locations across campus, from Friday 29th November.

We’re so pleased to still be the first Union to have implemented free, campus-wide sanitary products that are available to all students.’ The machines will have two varieties of tampon and two varieties of pad, which you can claim by presenting your student card.

Newcastle University is playing its part in tackling period poverty and period stigma! So, yet again, thank you to everyone who made this happen, previous Sabbatical Officers, Liberation Officers, members of Student Council, members of societies, and the University. We really do hope that you find these machines are of benefit to your student experience.
