New V-Plate digital card launches

Good news for bargain lovers: the UCSA has launched their new V-Plate digital card, a convenient way to grab your on-campus discounts  and vouchers.

To download it, either visit the Android or Apple app store and search ‘vplate’. Or scan either QR code below. You can also visit the V-Plate website here>

Do you already have a V-Plate card but want to use the fancy digital version? Just use the email address you registered with and your card number with an extra ‘0’ at the end. For example, card number ‘12345’ will have pin number ‘123450’.

P.S. For security reasons, we recommend you change your pin number at you first log in.

A look inside Haere-roa: The Foundry

In this week’s Haere-roa update, Kevin (UCSA’s International Student Rep) takes you for look around an old institution on campus – The Foundry. This student hangout has been around for ages, but come July it will make its big move across the carpark to the new student building.

There’ll be a few changes when The Foundry opens in its new location, including longer opening hours Monday to Friday. Take a look.
