How we're keeping you safe in COVID-19

All of our health and wellbeing support services are available to students. We're delivering these services remotely, either by phone or video call.

Mature students

While the average age of our postgraduates is 35, we regularly have people in their 40s, 50s and 60s studying at Newcastle. Once you have arrived, your specific support includes a mature student orientation programme. This is held before the start of term so you can meet other mature students.

World faiths

Most major world faiths are represented on campus, with Chaplains based in the University Chaplaincy and regular services of worship. Student-led religious societies also operate from the Students' Union.

There are several prayer rooms on campus which are open to all students and staff. This includes:

  • multi-faith prayer room in the University Chaplaincy
