The UCSA’s Opening Up For Level 2

These last few months have been a challenge, but the University of Canterbury Students’ Association (UCSA) is still here to support you as we move to Alert Level 2.

During the national lockdown, we shifted many of our services online and began to work remotely, but as lockdown lifts, we’re taking steps to reopen some on-campus facilities like select food and beverage outlets and Haere-roa (the UCSA building).

So what changes will you notice from Monday 18 May?


Haere-Roa will be opening its doors to students once again. Please remember that you’ll need your Canterbury Card to swipe yourself into the building, but once inside you can make a beeline to a comfy chair, or visit UCSA reception upstairs.

Haere-roa Central Street

Food and beverage

We’re also happy to announce that you’ll be able to grab your caffeine-fix or a bite to eat, Monday to Friday, from:

  • Nuts & Bolts, 9AM–3PM,
  • Collective, 9AM–2.30PM, and
  • Chilton’s, 9AM–4PM.

These outlets will be takeaway only, and we have full safety plans in place for each site. We can’t wait to welcome you back, and we appreciate your support.

University Book Shop (UBS)

Booklovers will be glad to know that UBS is reopening from Monday 18 May. And if you’re off-campus, you can also browse their goods from the comfort of your own home, through the UBS website.

Other UCSA services

If you’d like to know more about our services under Level 2, head to the COVID-19 page on our website for regular updates.

Uni Pharmacy at Covid-19 Level 2

The University of Canterbury Pharmacy is here to support all Students, Faculty and University employees. We are open 9:00am to 5:00pm Monday to Friday during Covid-19 level 2.

The Pharmacy and Post Shop is open for all Prescriptions, over the counter medications, health care needs and gifts, and for all our normal postal services.

For your safety and convenience your Doctor can e-mail/fax your prescription to us.

Due to Government Covid-19 restrictions on medicine supply most prescriptions need to be dispensed in monthly lots. You may find it convenient to have your prescription sent to us to supply your medication as you can collect it whilst on Campus.

During Level 2 restrictions you will need to scan the University QR code at the door to facilitate contact tracing, use the hand sanitiser when entering and exiting and keep your distance from others when in the Pharmacy.

We can only have 6 customers in the Pharmacy at a time at the moment, so at busy times you may need to queue at the door, please follow the floor markings for this.

If you have a cough or fever give us a call rather than coming in so we can discuss the best way to help.

Any queries please do not hesitate to phone or email us.
