Harris and students in NUSU
Hello from Newcastle University Students’ Union (NUSU)!

Congratulations on your place at Newcastle - we hope you’re excited to start! We’re Newcastle University Students’ Union, your new SU. As soon as you become a student at Newcastle University, you automatically become a member of the Students’ Union and get access to all our events, opportunities, clubs, and societies while you’re studying here. 

We also represent and support you by campaigning to improve your study experience and make our campus an inclusive and welcoming space. We do this through our team of elected Sabbatical Officers, School & Course Reps, and Liberation Officers.

You can also pop into the SU building to grab food on-the-go, visit Luthers’ Bar & Terrace, find yourself a relaxed place to study, or check out Venue, where we host incredible gigs and club nights. 

What’s coming up next? 

As you start in September, we will be hosting the OFFICIAL Freshers 2023 for Newcastle University students. Between 17 – 21 September, expect five days of incredible evening acts and entertainment (including Sigala, Scam Fender & the Copycat Killers) and a full schedule of daytime activities. Find out more and get your wristband here. Around the same time, we will also host our Clubs & Societies Fair and Discover Newcastle Fair, so keep your eyes out!
