History & Mission
What has now become The U was formed in 1961 by a group of visionary staff and students, initially providing food for the Newcastle University College community from a caravan at Tighes Hill.
The U, now as part of the University of Newcastle, has grown to become the people on campus that provides and manages a range of services and facilities on the Callaghan campus including bars, a range of food outlets as well as a functions centre. It also provides common meeting grounds and social centres for students and staff of the University and the broader University community.
Excellence in service provision.
A vibrant and engaging student experience and campus life.
