The University of Newcastle, Australia

Your Campus - Newcastle City (NeW Space)

More than just a place to get your education, the University of Newcastle is a community.

Whether you’re after a bite to eat, unique cultural experiences, a group or team to join, or just a quiet place to do a bit of late-night study, the University is home to world-class spaces and venues.



Getting To Campus

We recommend planning how you will get to campus before you start, and avoiding driving if possible. There are lots of ways to get to our City campus, including Active Travel (walking or cycling), Park and Ride, public transport or ride sharing.

Getting Around Campus

It’s normal to find campus difficult to navigate when you first start so we’ve got info to help you find your way.

Newcastle campus (Callaghan) and Newcastle City campus building names and rooms are commonly abbreviated, with ‘G’ and ‘LG’ often used to indicate the Ground or Lower Ground floor of a building.

NeW Space (in the Newcastle City campus) rooms are named using the following format:

X Identifies NeW Space building X-104 Floor number Room number (located on door)

Directional signage is located beside the lifts on each floor. On the ground floor there is a digital information kiosk next to the escalators to help you navigate around the building.

Use the ‘Direction’ tile on MyUON to find your way around using Maze Maps. And don’t be shy, just ask someone if you aren’t sure where to go as it’s no excuse to miss class!
