welcome to nuas 

We are the Newcastle University Architecture Society

About Us

We are the society for the students of the School of Architecture, Planning and Landscape, and all those who share a love for architecture. Anyone can join! All you need is a passion for the subject.

Our aim is to provide great opportunities for students beyond what the school offers, acting as a social outlet for members to break away from work and enjoy the subject and their time at Newcastle.

Throughout the year we offer a programme of events, from nights out and social gatherings to trips abroad and talks by key industry professionals, as well as our greatly anticipated annual black tie ball. 

Being a member of NUAS is a great way to meet people from across the school and make the most of your time here. 

Welcome to Newcastle. 

We hope you love it as much as we do.


Our Work

NUAS is an award-winning Student Society that has been supporting our members during their academic lives for over 40 years.

Representing more than 600 students a year, we’ve developed an evolving programme for the year - adapting itself to Covid-19 and its effect on your campus experience.

There are a range of benefits, from free or priority entry to all our events to discounts around the city, that will always make your membership worth it.

Your membership fee also allows us, as we're completely self-funded, to run the society, pay suppliers, invite guest speakers, plan events, and provide support to the student community - including the yearly Newcastle Degree Show, alongside the School and student volunteers.
