Emergency Taxi Scheme

Emergency Taxi

In collaboration with the Students' Union, Student Wellbeing Services are happy to provide Newcastle University students with an emergency taxi service. The aim of this service is to provide students with a way of returning to their accommodation should they find themselves stranded with no money.

If you are stranded with no money to get home please:

  • Call Budget taxis on 0191 298 5050
  • You will be asked for a reference number and should quote NEW02
  • The taxi driver will ask for your student card which they will keep in lieu of payment
  • You will be required to pay the taxi fare the following day at the Students' Union.
  • The students' union will return your student card when payment is received.
  • Taxi fares are limited to £8.00

If you do not have your student card with you please ring security on 0191 222 6817 who will arrange a taxi for you.
