The Forum completes its transition to NUsport as part of its move to the University of Newcastle in 2024

In 2021, the University of Newcastle solidified its commitment to enhancing student experiences, campus amenities, and community engagement through the integration of NUsport as a controlled entity. Now 2 years on, this transformative journey is well underway, with services, programs, and some departments consolidating under the University umbrella, accompanied by the introduction of the NUsport brand across the entire business.

As we embark on the next phase of this evolution, we are thrilled to officially transition 'The Forum' brand to the primary brand of NUsport. The NUsport name proudly reflects that we are now part of the University and provide fitness, health, well-being and sport solutions and experiences to all members and the community powered by research, knowledge and excellence.

The Forum will be a secondary brand name for our facilities at Callaghan and Harbourside. As a consequence the Forum URL has been retired and replaced with the NUsport URL.

Throughout this transition, our paramount goal is to ensure a seamless experience for our members, maintaining the high quality facilities they currently enjoy at all locations. Moreover, we are confident that the University's investment in NUsport will unlock added value for the community, University and staff.


The benefits you’ll receive:

Greater access to first class facilities for Members, community and staff and students of the University.

Elevated programs and services through research-backed excellence.

Commitment to continuous improvement and ongoing investment in our facilities, sporting grounds, equipment, and competitions.

More opportunities for Gym Members, social sport, University sport, School sport, and local grassroots and community sporting teams to thrive.

'The Forum' has proudly built a legacy of excellence in sport, health, and fitness over its 25 years of operation. The transition to the NUsport brand represents another significant stride toward realising our vision of inspiring healthier communities. It reinforces our commitment to delivering premier facilities, programs and opportunities, not only to our world-class University but to the broader community as well.

The synergy between NUsport and the University underscores our dedication to providing an enriching environment that fosters well-being, physical fitness, and community vitality.

Join us on this exciting journey as we continue to innovate, inspire, and build a healthier future for all.
