Waimairi Road crossing concerns

We have been made aware of some potential defects in the newly operational pedestrian crossing on Waimairi Road.

Christchurch City Council have been made informed and are investigating, but in the meantime, please continue to take care in the area whether walking or driving.

Old Commerce a bit gutted!


If you’re wondering what’s happening on Arts Road opposite Geography, the former Commerce building is being completely refurbished for the College of Education, Health and Human Development. In mid-2017 it will become the New Education building, and we can look forward to a whole new crew of staff and students moving over from the Dovedale campus to join us at Ilam.

Power outage this Saturday

Anyone planning to come in to campus this Saturday 18 April, is best to hold off until after 11.30 am. There’s a series of power outages planned to sort out the 11KV upgrade and most buildings will be affected at some time  between 7.00 am and 11.30 am. It’s all in a good cause to ensure the robustness of the upgrade and to test the emergency power supply to certain areas of campus. Please pass this info onto anyone else you think may be coming in on the weekend.
