Our Facilities

To support our research-driven education, we offer a range of unparalleled facilities across our creative arts, humanities, and social sciences disciplines.

Faculty facilities for discovery and impact

Newcastle University’s outstanding city-based campus is home to a wide range of fantastic facilities. These support our students and scholars and help inspire their learning journey.

We also boast an impressive range of learning spaces and equipment across the Faculty of Humanities and Social Sciences. These inspire our colleagues to carry out their research and learning. These include:  

  • maker spaces 
  • learning labs 
  • creative studios 
  • rehearsal and recording rooms 
  • extensive language resources 

We offer students and colleagues exciting facilities and spaces to support learning and research, fostering community.

Public facing facilities

Our Faculty is closely involved in exciting initiatives, which support learning and research for our colleagues. They also open up opportunities for members of the public to join in and contribute to our activities.  

We have our very own art space on campus. The Hatton Gallery, was founded in 1925. It includes over 3000 works from the 14th – 20th centuries. The Hatton stages a programme of modern and contemporary art exhibitions and events, including artist and curator talks and family activities. Our students at Newcastle University work closely with the gallery and exhibit their work on an annual basis.  

The Farrell Centre is a museum, research hub and civic space. Its aim is to increase public understanding of the roles that architecture and planning play in the contemporary world. 

We also work closely with other local cultural and creative partners and venues, such as Northern Stage, Baltic, Sage Gateshead, Tyne and Wear Archives and Museums, Beamish, and the National Trust. Our collaborative work with these partners benefits the local community.
