The UCSA: What’s on offer at your Students’ Association?

With Semester One in full swing, we hope you’re settling into campus life! If you’re new around here, allow us to introduce ourselves: we’re the University of Canterbury Students’ Association (or The UCSA) and we’re here to help you get the most out of your time at uni!

Led by a governance team of elected student reps, the UCSA is independent from the University, and we run a heap of student-focused support services, fun events, and even some great bars and cafes.

We’d definitely encourage you to explore our services – a few of them are highlighted below, but do check out our website for the full picture.  You can also stay connected with us through social media: @theUCSA on Facebook and @ucsa_nz on Instagram.

Otto and Oishii: New eateries on campus

Have you tried the new campus eateries Otto and Oishii yet?

Otto is a pizzeria, serving up hot slices and dirty curly fries (pro tip: add an extra flavour hit by tucking into their huge sauce collection).  They’re open Monday to Friday for coffee from 9am, then pizza from 10am till 7pm.

Then there’s Oishii, a contemporary sushi bar full of delicious rice treats. You can stop by Monday to Friday, 10am till 4pm.

You’ll find them both in the Undercroft.
