Social Events

You'll have the opportunity to take part in various social activities that will help you to make new friends and settle into university life.

All social events are currently held online. When the Government guidelines change this will be reviewed.


Newcastle University Students' Union (NUSU) run a number of exciting social events for all students throughout the year. NUSU have partnered with Native Events this year to offer you some fantastic free online events. More information on dates, times and how to book onto these can be found on the NUSU Events site.

The Give it a Go (GIAG) Team at the Students' Union are creating lots of fab activities to help you get to know Newcastle and the surrounding area, make friends and settle into student life too. Examples of these activities include online exercise classes, arts and crafts socials and online experiences (such as murder mystery nights and observatory talks). There is a fantastic selection of activities to choose from, so there should be something for everyone. No experience is necessary for any of the events, all students are welcome to join in. The GIAG Events page is updated regularly so keep checking back to find out what social activities are available.
