The University of Newcastle

Welcome to UniSuper, Australia’s only super fund dedicated to higher education and research professionals

Partnering with your university!

Did you know that UniSuper has been Newcastle University’s super fund of choice since 1988?

UniSuper was established over 30 years ago by a small group of academics who wanted to create an industry super fund for employees of the higher education and research sector.  Today, we are one of Australia’s largest super funds, partnering with 37 universities and existing solely for the benefit of our members.

Seminars & WEBINARS

We regularly hold seminars at your university and these are free to attend.  Topics range from retirement planning and Centrelink, to superannuation for women.

Most of us need advice when it comes to money at some stage of our lives. Mark Horwood from UniSuper Advice can come and meet you at the University of Newcastle to discuss retirement planning and investment strategies, debt management and more. Initial appointments are complimentary, but please note that Mark is unable to provide you with personal advice in the initial meeting. If he is able to provide you with advice, you will receive a quote to receive personal advice.

How you are represented

Our shareholders are our 37 national universities.  Each of these universities, including Newcastle University, has up to four members who serve a critical role on UniSuper’s Consultative Committee (Committee).

The Committee is the voice of our members and employers.  The Committee reviews and approves changes to the UniSuper Trust Deed and is responsible for nominating four directors to our Board.  

One half of our Committee members represent employers and the other half represent members, including an equal number of academic staff and general staff.

Newcastle University is represented by four consultative committee members, one representing academic staff, one representing general staff and two representing the university as the employer.
