UCGO: campus safety info in your hand

The UCGO app has been enhanced to provide you more information about campus safety at UC.

From the Campus Safety tile on the UCGO app you can directly call the UC Security team for assistance, and see new information categories: security at UC, general emergency information, help towers, assault and consent, and reporting hazards at UC. There is also an easy-to-read banner display showing the status of campus as open.

As always, we like getting feedback from you on how you’re using UCGO, what you like and what could be done better. You can provide feedback directly from the app through the settings function at the bottom of the screen, or you can provide feedback in the blog comments below.

Download the UCGO app from the Apple App Store or Google Play now, or find out more about the app here>

Diversity at UC – I pledge to…

Diversity Fest 2019 is coming to an end this week. See the last events and activities happening this week here>

As part of Diversity Fest we have been asking students about what makes a diverse community and how we can all contribute to making UC a more inclusive community.

In this video UCSA Postgrad Rep Katie Mills got out and about to find out what diversity looks like to different people and what we can do to be more accepting other’s points of view.

Join the conversation – we want to hear from as many of you as possible, if you missed the chance to share your thoughts with Katie please include them in the comments below.

Anonymous text helpline – Thursdays in Black

Thursdays in Black is a student club at UC that not only seeks to prevent rape and sexual violence but to promote healthy relationships and to offer support for our students.

We want everyone to feel safe in our community and feel like your voice is being heard so you can feel empowered to stand up for what you believe in. 

Thursdays in Black is here to help. We have set up an anonymous helpline using pre-paid phones so you can text and discuss any topic or incident that may have made you feel uncomfortable or distressed. The student team will also be able to let you know what other support options might be available to you.

Sometimes you just want to be able to talk to someone – Thursdays in Black is here for you.

Anonymous helpline – contact the Thursdays in Black student support team on any of these numbers
