UNSA: Your New Student Association
The University of Newcastle Students’ Association (UNSA) signifies a new era in student representation.
Since 2018, the University’s three student associations, NUPSA, NUSA and Yourimbah, have collaborated to contribute to the design of a brand new student representative organisation. Their vision and hard work has paid off with the University of Newcastle Students' Association (UNSA) commencing operations on 1 July 2020.
UNSA will continue to provide all the support, services and activities offered by the three antecedent associations, and will also implement location-based assemblies to respond to the needs of students in Newcastle, Ourimbah, Port Macquarie and Sydney. To complement the four geographical campus committees, UNSA has also designed a student committee dedicated to the University's 4,000 Cloud Campus students.
The new association has key focus areas in Education; Engagement & Experience; and Welfare & Wellbeing, as well as a senate dedicated to postgraduate student matters and one to international student issues. Eighteen students make up the Student Representative Council, and collaboration with University staff is underway to populate the committees and senates across the key focus areas and campus locations.
The UNSA website is currently under construction, however if you have any questions in the interim please email the Project Officer.
