History & Mission
The organisation that was to become UoN Services Limited (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 has grown to become the organisation 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.
UoNS is now a public company limited by guarantee, a controlled entity of the University of Newcastle, and is governed by a Board of Directors which includes student representatives, University appointees and independent directors with expertise from various business sectors.
UoN Services operates on four key values: Engagement, Support, Innovation and Sustainability.
UoN Services Limited gratefully acknowledges the continued and valued support provided by University of Newcastle. To enhance the campus experience through the provision of exceptional facilities and services.
To provide an exceptional campus experience which contributes to the success, growth and well-being of the University, its students and staff.
