This Friday, Speaker Trevor Mallard and MPs are bringing Parliament to UC. Students are encouraged to come along for a BBQ and a chat.
The travelling non-partisan event was launched in South Auckland at the end of last year, and aims to encourage student engagement. They’re out to prove that you don’t need to live in Wellington to get involved with Parliament – there are loads of ways to have your say.
Friday’s event will be hosted by the UC Pols club, a non-partisan political group here on campus. They’ll be joined by Mr Speaker and MPs David Carter, David Seymour, Matt Doocey and Jan Logie.
If you’re keen for a chat and a bite to eat, stop by Parly to the People in the Undercroft this Friday from 1.00pm to 2.30pm.
See you there!
- When: Friday 15 March, 1.00pm–2.30pm
- Where: the Undercroft.
Want to meet people? Get involved?
One of the best ways to do that is to join a UCSA club or society.
Our clubs really know how to put on a show, so be sure to come along to Clubs Day and check out what they’re peddling!
Clubs are the real social scene here at UC, and the summer Clubs Day is a bustle of energy you won’t want to miss out on.
Here’s a sneak preview of your choices>
Clubs Day is a chance for you to figure out what clubs you want to be a part of and for clubs to recruit new members, creating connections and engagement within the student culture.
Most are free and if not, they’re usually cheap as chips (if English is your second language, this is one way Kiwis refer to a bargain)!
- When: Tuesday 19 and Wednesday 20 February from 10am
- Where: Ilam, Central Campus

Established in 2017, HealthSoc is a supportive community for students of the Health Science degree. We run social events and offer academic support throughout the year, and are more than happy to listen to any ideas or issues you might have about the degree, or about your wellbeing in general. As a club we want to give Health Science students the encouragement to engage with university life and with other students studying Health Science!
We’ve got some exciting events coming up for you guys. During study break we’re running a movie night on Tuesday 5 June, book the evening off in your calendar now. Come along to the living room next to UBS with your favourite blanket and gold coin donation to enjoy free pizza and popcorn, socialise and take your mind off upcoming exams for a few hours. We would love to connect with more Health Science students, but please bring your friends too, everyone is welcome.
In term 3 we are planning a quiz night. Keep an eye on our social media platforms for more information coming soon.
