The UC community is a close-knit group of people committed to creating a campus culture of understanding, inclusiveness and caring. Ākonga Tū, Ākonga Ora.
The Student Code of Conduct is a key document that reflects our values. When you enrolled at UC you would have agreed to comply with UC’s regulations and policies, including the Student Code of Conduct.
Get to know the Code
Your time at UC is an opportunity to not only gain academic knowledge and skills, but to live independently, meet new people and get involved in new experiences that help you grow both professionally and personally.
As a student, you’ll try new things, make mistakes and learn from them, but you still have a responsibility to keep yourself and others safe and not bring UC into disrepute.
If you haven’t already, take a look at Know the Code which sets out your rights and responsibilities and aligns with the Student Code of Conduct. It highlights the partnership between UC and students to provide a safe learning, living and working environment.
It’s all about knowing your responsibilities, keeping yourself safe and looking out for your mates and the UC community.
Raise a concern
You can voice a concern, complaint, grievance, or appeal a decision, without fear of disadvantage. Your discussions will be confidential and no action will be taken without your consent. See more information about raising a concern.
You can report any form of harassment or bullying by making a formal complaint or reporting it anonymously online using Report It. Complaints are kept on file and used to build a picture of the culture on campus and to inform initiatives.
