Welcome to UNSA, your peak representative body for University of Newcastle students

University of Newcastle Students Association

Who? What?

Born on 1 July 2020 we are a not-for-profit organisation and our purpose is to positively impact your student experience in matters related to your educational experiences, welfare and wellbeing, and by providing a range of activities, extra-curricular events, and out-of-class engagement opportunities. The services you enjoyed through NUSA, NUPSA and Yourimbah are all still available through UNSA, and we plan to expand our support and services to all students.

UNSA has a Student Representative Council (SRC), made up of 18 student representatives. Three external Directors and the six SRC Executive members make up the UNSA Board. Representatives are elected by you, the students, at the Annual Elections in semester 2 each year.

2020 Student Representative Council Members

Want to be a part of it?

The elected student representatives are recruiting students to fill positions on the Committees and Senates that advise up to the SRC. There’s a committee for each campus, an International and a Postgraduate senate and there are portfolio committees for students interested in Education, Experience & Engagement or Welfare & Wellbeing. Watch your @uon email account and the UNSA facebook page for opportunities in the coming weeks.

Sign up to be a member – costs you nothing, means we can contact you to tell you about activities, services and opportunities… also means you can nominate to be a rep and vote. Email us at unsa@newcastle.edu.au and we’ll get back to you with a membership form.
