O Week

O Week 2014 kicks off on Monday 24 February – and wraps up with a bang at the Jungle themed O Party on Friday 28 February.

O Week is your chance to learn all about university life! You can tick all your boxes at the O Week jungle, not only are there helpful academic seminars so you can learn about your degree, but the U put on plenty of superfun events and activities for you to learn about uni life – outside the classroom.

There is the O Week Expo in the Brennan Room to explore, where all the University sporting and social clubs, Newcastle bars, different University support services and other awesome services set up stalls for you to peruse! The different clubs are a great way to meet new people and there is always a whole heap of free stuff to grab from the stalls. We’ll be there so you can drop by, say hello and sign up to be a U Member or find out about everything from volunteering to the next gig at Bar on the Hill.

Not only is there the O Week Expo! We put on comedy nights, free entertainment, barbeques, massive inflatables and even markets.

O Week 2014 ends with a Jungle themed O Party at Bar on the Hill. With both international and Australian bands and DJ acts having played O Party in the past, it's a must-attend! Throw on your favourite jungle outfit and come down to the jungle to meet new people and cut some rug with your new classmates!
