Support to help you study and stay well @ home
Your academic success and personal health and wellbeing are at the heart of everything we do at the University of Newcastle.
We have set up this site for you to easily access the resources you need to study successfully at home while ever necessary as part of our response to the COVID-19 pandemic.
On this site you will find links to resources to support your academic learning and study routine, your personal health and wellbeing, and your employment and career needs and goals. You’ll also find information about ways to stay connected to one another and your university community. We’ll bring you loads of stories from other students via our Navigator team and of course we are always here for you if you have any questions or concerns.
Together we’ve got this.

Your wellbeing @ home
Staying well – both physically and mentally – is a critical part of successful student life. While it might be more challenging than usual at the moment for some of you, now is the time to reach out for support. We have support available for all our students – no matter where they are. Here you’ll find links to all of our health and wellbeing support services which can now be accessed in modes other than face-to-face, so that you can find the support you need, when you need it.
Student life @ home
While social distancing and isolation has changed the way we meet and interact for the moment, we are finding ways to bring you entertainment and connection while you are @ home. From live-streamed music to virtual events, visit our website and socials to keep up to date with the latest student life activities.
Employability and careers @ home
We are still here to help you with your career goals and provide support as you navigate current employment issues. With most of our services moving online – even our expos – now is a great time to think about how you would like your future to look, and then talk to us about it.
