Autonomy Day is the annual celebration of the University of Newcastle becoming independent from the University of New South Wales in 1965.
And how do we celebrate this glorious freedom? With a big day party.
The University of Newcastle acknowledges the traditional custodians of the lands within our footprint areas: Awabakal, Darkinjung, Biripai, Worimi, Wonnarua, and Eora Nations. We also pay respect to the wisdom of our Elders past and present.
