Call Us NUSU!

You’re probably wondering what this 'NUSU' is that keeps popping up on your social media and in your inbox. Well, that’s us. We’re the Students’ Union for all students at Newcastle University. And, long story short, we’re here to make sure your student experience is the best it can be. From sports clubs and societies, one-off trips and activities,  socialising and gigs, and even student deals and discounts around the Toon, we’re here to better your student experience. But we’re also here when times get tough. We are your voice and your support network, campaigning on the issues that matter to you (whether that's for welfare and equality or issues on your course). 

Unfortunately, due to the Covid-19 we aren't going ahead with the usual Freshers events. But don’t worry, we are still running loads of events and activities, as well as offering the best advice on your move to Newcastle. We have even put out a vote to our students to give you the Top 10 lists of places to drink, eat, and explore in Newcastle. As well as this, you can check out our New Student Checklist and Halls groups where you can find your new housemates early. Below, you can also find more info on the SU (including our clubs, societies, and facilities) and the latest info on keeping safe on campus during the current pandemic.

So, take a look around and discover what Newcastle and NUSU have to offer.
