Student Services

Winter in Newcastle

Find out what's happening in December and the Winter Break - there's lots to keep you occupied!

University & NUSU Events

Throughout December we offer a programme of fun activities from a range of services across the University for all students to take part in. These activities also take place over the Winter Break. All Newcastle University, Newcastle University London and Newcastle University INTO students are welcome to join all of the events.

Taking part is a great way to meet other students, both UK and International, especially during the time when the University will be closed and many students will be away. You don’t need to have anyone to go to the events with, the hosts will ensure you're included. The events will be a mixture of online and in person so you can see a friendly face and meet new people no matter what your circumstances or where you are.

More information and the schedule of events is available on our Winter 2021 University Events and Activities page.

Support your health and wellbeing

Campus is quiet over the Winter Break, due to a number of University closure days but support is still available should you need it. Find out more about the support available over the Winter Break on our Winter Break Support page.

Local Events

The city and region have lots of fantastic opportunities to take part in and help make the dark nights seem shorter and for you to join in with Festive cheer in the North East! 

More information on these events and activities is available on our Winter 2021 Local Events page.
