Rep Awareness Week


Rep Awareness Week 2020 runs between 17-21 February. The aim of the week is to give you more insight into student representation at Newcastle and how your Reps make your voice heard on your course, in your School, in your halls of residence or out in the community.

Throughout the week you will find Reps stationed across campus, where you can chat with them and leave your feedback. This feedback will be sent round to your Reps and Education Officer so that we can get a better understanding of the issues affecting you.

Did you know that in addition to your NUSU Officer team you are represented by a number of different Reps at University, all supported by NUSU, your Students’ Union:

School Reps represent your views in meetings with the Head of School and Faculty. You can contact them using the Newcastle University App or find their email address on our website.

Course Reps take feedback about your program and student experience to your Student-Staff Committee, where they work with staff to find solutions to any issues that have arisen. You can contact them using the Newcastle University App.

EDI Reps work with staff to address issues relating to equality, diversity, and inclusivity in your School or Institute.

Inclusivity Ambassadors build supportive networks, create events, drive positive change and promote inclusivity, especially for BAME and low-income students

Community and Hall Reps represent you in your residential area of Newcastle or your accommodation. You can get in touch with them via our website.
