We’re about to spring forward, check you’re emergency ready

Daylight saving’s as good of a time as any to take a moment to make sure you’re all set in case of an emergency. Check you’re prepared:

  • Have you saved UC Security’s number in your phone?

UC Security staff are on campus 24 hours a day, seven days a week, so no matter when you might need to get in touch, someone will always be there to help. Be prepared by having UC Security’s number saved: 0800 823 637.

  • Are your UCGO push notifications turned on?

The UCGO app brings essential UC tools to your phone. One of these tools is emergency push notifications. These are only used when there is a campus wide emergency we need you to know about, and could include campus evacuations and lock-down situations.

FYI – there will be an emergency test in the morning on Thursday 30 September.

  • Have you updated your emergency contacts?

Keep your emergency contact details updated – go to People Soft to check your information is correct. Instructions are available here>

  • Do you know where the Emergency Procedures are located around your lectures? 

All departments have an Emergency Procedures flip chart outlining what to do in various types of emergencies. The flip charts are on display throughout the University. If you have not seen the flip charts, ask where they are or view the PDF file versions of each page here.

  • Remember: No smoking or vaping on campus

UC is a smokefree campus, meaning you cannot smoke cigarettes or vape on campus grounds, in or near any UC buildings or at any field stations. By respecting the smokefree policy we can all enjoy a healthier place to study, work, socialise and live.

The best place to go with all up to date information about UC’s Commitment to Health, Safety and Wellbeing is online here.
