Cycling is a good way to get to UoN avoiding traffic and parking, while keeping fit at the same time. We provide facilities and services to make cycling easy.

Cycling to campus

Cycling is a good way to get to our campuses avoiding traffic and parking, while keeping fit at the same time.

We have a number of bike racks available on our Newcastle (Callaghan) and Central Coast (Ourimbah) campuses for you to safely secure your bike.

There are also a number of cycleways to and from our Newcastle, City precinct and Central Coast campuses.

The University of Newcastle Bicycle User Group (NUBUG) is a cycling advocacy group for staff and students, which promotes cycling for fun, camaraderie, sport and transport.

NUBUG also operates the Bike Love Corral (PDF 1.3MB) on Newcastle campus at Callaghan which provides:

  • bike hire (bike library) 
  • bike repairs and checks
  • bike repair workshops

Bike Love Corral is on every Thursday during semester from 10am to 4pm on the southern side of the NUSA building.

Shared path etiquette

UoN paths are shared pathways. Follow our etiquette tips so everyone can enjoy getting around our campuses.

  1. Stick to the left of the path.
  2. Travel at a safe speed and give way to others.
  3. If riding a bike, use your warning bell when overtaking pedestrians.
