The University of Newcastle, Australia

Meeting People

Your uni years are a wonderful time to expand your horizons, start creating a professional network, and make new friends. Sometimes it's as simple as saying 'hi' to the person sitting next to you in class, but there are lots of other ways you can meet people while you're here.

Clubs and societies

There are over 100 clubs on campus with something for everyone, from sporting, social and cultural to religious and everything in between. During your Orientation make sure you visit the Expo to find out more about clubs and societies. Many of them will have stalls, hold fun demonstrations and sign up new members.

Be part of our community

The University is an enormous, thriving community, with tens of thousands of current students, thousands of members of staff, and over 140,000 alumni. Now you’re part of that community – so make the most of it!

Bookmark the events and Uni Life pages so you always know what’s going on, and check out the social media directory to stay connected on your favourite social platforms.
