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.

Our Mission

Excellence in service provision.

Our Vision

A vibrant and engaging student experience and campus life.
