Opus has been an independent student-run publication at the University of Newcastle for more than 70 years, covering everything from student life to politics, welfare, arts and entertainment. Now a part of UNSA, it operates in both print and digital format.
Opus's first issue of 2021 introduces our new Student Representative Council, and offers tons of tips and tricks for new students trying to settle in. There are book and album reviews, an illustrated campus tour, and an interview with the University's Vice-Chancellor, Alex Zelinsky.Click to read

Having found a new home at UNSA, Opus' first big issue was a celebration of spring – and emerging from a winter in COVID lockdown. This issue featured articles on mental health and self-care, getting back to campus, shows to watch while stuck at home, and an intro to UNSA and its student leaders. We also looked at the emerging Black Lives Matter movement, and the rising popularity of platforms such as OnlyFans.Click to read
