Disability Resource Service and Student Care on the move

The Disability Resource Service (DRS) | Ratonga Whaikaha and Student Care | Atawhai Ākonga are moving into the Forestry building next week.

On Monday 4 and Tuesday 5 March they’ll be relocating to 125 Forestry – the area by the level 1 main entrance next to Student Experience.

Services will remain available during relocation

DRS and Student Care will still be available if you need to contact them for anything during the relocation on Monday and Tuesday.

Their contact details are:

From Wednesday you can visit the teams in their new offices in the Forestry building.

New location, new name

The Disability Resource Service is changing its name to the Equity and Disability Service to better reflect the services and support you can access. From next week you might start to notice this change on the website and signage.
