Unlike the majority of other students' unions in the UK, Newcastle University Students' Union (NUSU) owns the building in which it is housed. The Union building was built in 1924 following a generous gift from an anonymous donor, who is now believed to have been Sir Cecil Cochrane, a major benefactor to the University.

The Grade II listed building was built in the neo-Jacobean style and designed by the local architect Robert Burns Dick. It has recently undergone redevelopment to designs by the local Architects, Faulkner Browns. The refurbistment of the student's union building won the Education Interior Design award in the National Mixology Interior Design Awards 2011.
