How to renew your RecCentre membership for 2020

We’ve got great news for returning UC students!   We’ve got some bots working overtime to process your 2020 membership, so you can just keep on keeping on!

Phew!  We’ve managed to get rid of two pesky lines for returning students.  As long as you pay your student levy before Feb 28, 2020, your membership will just roll over and your card will keep on working.  Your terms and conditions of use will not change from the original ones you signed.  That’s right, just pay your fees and do nothing else. Easy.

If you haven’t already, download our Rec&Sport app for up-to-date schedules, fitness programmes and more.

No longer a student? 
No problem! Your membership expires on 1 March, 2020. This means you can keep using it up to and including the 1 March.  After that, you can opt to join the RecCentre as an alumni (if you graduated), or as a community member (if you didn’t graduate).   We’ve got you covered, keep an eye on our Facebook page and your inbox for our alumni special in late Feb/early March.

If you don’t wish to renew your membership, please email us on reccentre@canterbury.ac.nz.  Please note that you are not entitled to a refund on your student levy, we will just remove you from our database.    We recommend remaining enrolled, because well, it’s already paid for, and FOMO.

 

Bicycle thefts on campus

The UC community is currently experiencing a large number of bicycle thefts. The Security team are working with Police to identify and apprehend the offenders.

If you see any suspicious activity around any of the bicycle stands on campus please contact UC Security on 6111 or 0800 823 637 immediately.

If you are parking your bicycle on campus, we suggest that you use the secure bicycle sheds. These are located at Creyke Road, behind C-Block lecture theatre and next to the Meremere (law) building.

Most importantly UC Security suggest that you use a good quality D-Lock to secure your bicycle. These have proven to be a great deterrent to thieves as all the reported thefts to date have been of bicycles secured using wire rope or chain locks.
