Start Strong

Social Life

UON has students of all ages, backgrounds and interests, so 'finding your people' isn't too hard. Plus we have loads of ways for you to meet people and do fun and interesting stuff together outside of class. We know that people who have strong social networks usually do better at their studies, so don't wait any longer - uni's better with friends.

While your studies are likely to be the number one reason you came to uni, there's so much more that happens outside the classroom. We want you to make lifelong memories and to feel  part of something awesome, so we have a calendar packed with events and activities throughout the year to help you make the most of your student experience. Keep an eye on the Events calendar on the UON website or follow UON Student Central on Facebook so you don't miss out on the fun and fabulous stuff!

Studying with other students at PASS sessions is a great way to improve your grades and feel more involved in your courses – and you'll probably make some new friends into the bargain. PASS is free and sessions are led by a student who has already been successful in your course – so take advantage of their wisdom!

You don't have to go it alone! Student Mentors are available for all UON students – you just have to ask for one. Mentors are students who have been there before and know all the insider hints and tricks for successful student life. Request a mentor and get your hands on some insider info.

Student Associations are there to support students while studying at UON. You can find info about your student bodies and associations here.
