Welcome to Newcastle University Students' Union!


We’re the big red brick building on King’s Walk in the centre of campus, perfectly located to keep you entertained, well fed and with plenty of space to study. 

The Students’ Union (NUSU) is known by all of our students as the place where you really can Live, Work, and Play. We’re the social side, the welfare side and overall general fun side of your time at University. Want to party? We’re here. Need to study somewhere a little less stuffy? We’re here. Need a Subway sandwich, Domino’s pizza, Starbucks Frappuccino and get your dissertation bound, all at the same time? You guessed it, we’re here and, not to brag, but we’ve got it all.  

NUSU is run by students, for students. Your time at University really matters to us, that’s why we’ve had a huge £8 million refurbishment to make sure we can provide you with the best facilities to help make your time here with us the best it ever could be. We have a team of 6 Sabbatical officers and 9 Part Time Officers who represent you and your views from academic to welfare and all round wellbeing. 

There is so much you can do at NUSU to get involved. Whether it’s joining one of over 200 societies and 60 clubs, getting a part time job, joining our Guardian award winning student media The Courier, Newcastle Student Radio (NSR) and The Courier TV (TCTV),  getting support and advice from our Student Advice Centre (SAC), watching a band, going to one of our legendary Throwback Saturdays, going horseback riding, rock climbing and getting fish and chips in Tynemouth with our activities scheme Give it a Go or just simply hanging out with your friends, NUSU has everything (and we mean everything) covered. 

We’ve even got all of the amenities you’ll need under one roof too – there’s Mens Bar, Starbucks, Domino’s, Subway, Santander, Centurion IT and Sploshh Printers. So really, you’ll never need to go anywhere else!


Don't just take our word for it...

We’re not ones to blow our own trumpet, but this is something we definitely have to share!

Our Values...

Our aim is to be democratic, inclusive, effective, progressive, independentSustainable and Socially Responsible and fun. And if you ask us, we most certainly are! We help to support the things that matter to you so if you have an idea for a campaign (however trivial you think it may be) come and see us because, chances are, it’ll be something we really want to promote too.

NUSU really has to be seen to be believed. Our doors are always open to our students, their friends, family and parents to come and see everything we do. At NUSU we run a whole host of campaigns and events to get our students thinking and to get them involved. We host some of the most anticipated events in the academic calendar including the epic Freshers’ Welcome Week, Athletic Union (Sports) Ball, Teaching Excellence Awards, Graduation Ball and Student Media Awards as well as running campaigns such as Housing and Finance, Mental Health Information days, Christmas and Green Markets run by our student volunteers, S.O.S (Stressed Out Students) and RAG Week (Raising and Giving) – anyone for a charity Man vs Food eating contest? 


Not only that, but you’ll even have the opportunity to run for one of our Officer positions; that means we could see you running the Students’ Union, gaining work experience and you’ll be getting paid for it! Not too bad is it..? There really is so much for you to do here at NUSU – we’d love to see you get involved!

Just some of our awards...
