New website to make search for uni information easier

Your Unofficial Guide to the University of Newcastle. By Newy students, for Newy students. Visit the website at www.unofficialuon.com

A new website aims to help commencing and current students easily access information on university support services and campus life.

The site, the Unofficial Guide to UoN, has been designed as a place for students to find out information about the university’s main services, facilities, systems and campus life that they may have had difficulty finding through traditional information channels.

It collates information about services and directs to further information on external sites.

The digital nature of the site allows access to information in an interactive way not possible through print guides, with image and video content from the university, student media channel Yak TV and Surf Life Saving Australia featured on the site.

Information and tips from students on everything from getting around campus and leisure activities to saving money and job hunting has been included.

The site was created by two students with guidance from the U, and was funded by the Student Services and Amenities Fee (SSAF).
