If you use Homestead Lane, you might have noticed a new construction project. This is to build a new student residential hall, scheduled to open in 2021.
This means Homestead Lane will be busy and may be restricted to one lane or closed to two-way traffic at times. The Orbiter bus route changed in January and you need to walk down Homestead Lane or cross Ilam fields to catch the bus from Waimairi Road.
It’s important to follow signage on Homestead Lane, use open footpaths and avoid restricted or closed areas. Think first, look after yourself and if you see a hazard, report it to Security by calling 0800 823 637.

The former Communications Disorders car park will be unavailable from 11 February and pedestrian access through the site will be closed from 18 February.
In preparation for the land being sold, buildings on the site have been sold and will be removed between 18 February and late March. Buildings being moved will be loaded onto trucks during the day and removed from the site outside normal working hours.
Parking is available at UC’s other car parks as usual.
If you park on Montana Avenue, please take care to follow signage and not block driveways or access routes as these will be used to clear the site.
