Australian networks

Alumni from the University of Newcastle can be found all over Australia. They stay connected via the various alumni networks to be found in New South Wales, Victoria, Queensland and the Australian Capital Territory.

Our Indigenous alumni span all faculties and are represented at all levels of study, from enabling education to research higher degrees. The Wollotuka Institute is home of the Kunarr Alumni Network and provides opportunities for our Indigenous alumni to connect.

If your location doesn't have an alumni network please register your interest by emailing alumni@newcastle.edu.au

The largest number of our graduates reside across New South Wales with over 12,000 graduates in Sydney and over 50,000 across the Hunter.

The University has established a campus presence in the heart of Sydney, and alumni are welcome to visit our facilities in the Sydney CBD.

For more information and opportunities to get involved with your UON alumni network read about our Hunter and Sydney Networks.

We call ourselves Melbocastrians (Novocastrians in Melbourne) and we are rolling out some new events and activities, which will be progressively announced on this page.

We have now launched our new personal assistance service. It is available to all graduates who are part of the University of Newcastle community who need information, assistance or general help from a fellow graduate in Melbourne.

We have a pool of some 800+ graduates throughout Melbourne who are in different stages of their careers and have a deep knowledge of everything about Melbourne.

Examples of how we can help:

  • You're going for a job in Melbourne and want some information on the industry
  • You're moving to Melbourne and want to find accommodation
  • You need a friendly face when you get to Melbourne.
