In order to vote, be part of the Committee, take advantage of free or discounted entry to our events, and to support the work done for your welfare, Degree Show, sports teams and campaigning, you'll have to become a member of the society.
All Newcastle University students can become members of the Architecture Society, regardless of their course - with our work focusing on the interests of the students at the School of Architecture, Planning and Landscape, where we function as a the official Departmental Society.
To become a member, you can do so through the link below - check out our year-based tiers below!
Becoming a Member
Membership to NUAS is tiered - this is part because, when you first start off at Newcastle, NUAS' events, nights out, talks and formals are a much larger part of your non-academic life, with our Freshers' events, post-review parties and trips abroad being a hallmark of your first year.
As we're nearly completely self-funded, as you move along your course, and come into the fold of being part of the Committee yourself if you're keen on contributing to student life, NUAS' financial investment into each member becomes less and less - while the voluntary work done by the committee increases.
Click on your tier below to purchase your membership on the Student's Union website - and check out our sponsorship tab if you're not a student but would still like to contribute or enjoy NUAS benefits:

A change in culture:
With Covid, we’ve gone less for what was the hallmark of NUAS membership benefits (like a free drink at Soho, or cheaper entrance at MSA), and instead have bet on new eating and drinking establishments that will be useful to you, both in campus and in the key student areas.
This matches the recent push by the Student's Union to reduce the dependency of societies, and especially departmental ones like our own, on bars and clubs.
