The Women's Collective is a safe, inclusive autonomous collective for women identifying, trans and non-binary students at the University of Newcastle. The Women's Room (NUSA building, Hunter side of campus) is a place where women can meet new people, make friends, be creative and be there for each other. This space is trans inclusive and a place for women-identifying people.
