The University of Newcastle maintains a general Insurance program that aims to cover the insurable risks associated with its operations. In addition to minimising losses to assets and liabilities, the program also provides some financial protection to individuals (staff and students) who are involved in approved activities of the University.

You may be covered by the University's general insurance if you are undertaking activities that are related to your work or study that are undertaken and/or approved in line with relevant University Policies and Procedures.

The Insurance information contained throughout these pages is an overview designed to answer common questions. If you need more information or can’t find what you need, you can contact the Insurance team at
