What is The Tab?

The Tab is the biggest student news site in the UK with over six million monthly readers. Last year was a mega one for the Newcastle page, breaking loads of big news stories and hitting 10,000 followers on Instagram!

We break the biggest stories on campus. The Newcastle Tab were the first to report on the racist incident at Manor Bank accommodation and Flares catching on fire.

In other news, we revealed receipts from lavish meals uni staff were claiming on expenses and conducted important all research into the weirdest place Newcastle students have had sex.
