Closed walkway around Ernest Rutherford

The walkway between the Ernest Rutherford building and the new Beatrice Tinsley building will be closed from 24 August to 8 September.

You will still be able to walk through Ernest Rutherford building and across the bridge to the Engineering Core. The closure is to allow for asphalt work to take place. Please take care in the area during this time, follow any directional signage and stay outside the fenced off area.

Diversity Fest 2019 – coming soon

Mark it in your calendar, Diversity Fest 2019 is coming soon!

Running in Term 4 from 9 September – 13 October, Diversity Fest will include a global fashion show, an international food market, film screening and Q&A session and a range of speakers. There will be heaps of other events, as well as a range of activities hosted by student clubs and societies.

This is a chance for everyone across campus to come together and celebrate the rich diversity of our university community, while discussing how we can further make this a place where we feel we all belong.

It’s not too late to have your say

UC would like feedback from some current students (200 level up to taught masters). Your feedback will help us improve the student experience at UC. 

Check your UClive email to see if you were selected to take part in the survey, look for a message with the subject line “Tell us what you think about UC and be in to win” (sent on 5 August and 13 August).

The survey should only take about 15 minutes, and if you complete  it by midnight Sunday 25 August you will  go in the draw to win one of three Ultimate Ears Wonderboom bluetooth speakers.

Survey responses will remain confidential. If you have any questions please email the survey coordinator, James Maguire at  surveys@canterbury.ac.nz
