UC landscape and transport plan – what do you think?

Concepts for the UC Landscape and Transport Plan have been provided by the consultants. We’re keen that our students view these and provide valuable feedback to the project team.

Visual displays will be in both the Central Library in Puaka-James Hight and in Henry Field on the Dovedale campus from Monday 19 to Sunday 25 September.

This is your chance to feed into an exciting long-term strategy for the UC campus of the future.

Be Heard! UC Travel Survey 12 July

A unique opportunity to share your views on travel issues – 12 July.

We know that many of you are interested in transport and car parking matters here at UC.

Next week, on Tuesday 12 July, all staff and students will be asked for their views on travelling to the University, through an online survey.  This is a great chance to make a difference.

The survey only happens once every four years.  It only runs for one day – capturing a snapshot or ‘day in the life of’ travel choices.

We strongly urge you to take a few minutes next Tuesday to complete this survey when you find it in your email inbox.

How long does it take? The survey will take about ten minutes to complete.

Why should I care? This is a rare opportunity to be heard on travel issues, which only comes around once every four years. This survey is vital for gauging staff and student travel patterns. This year the University is undertaking an important transport master planning exercise, which will identify key transport needs for our community into the foreseeable future. This survey will provide key data for this planning exercise. The information gathered will help the University cater for all travel modes. Results from the survey will also inform the Christchurch City Council and Environment Canterbury on transport matters relevant to UC –  for example, improving bus services to/from UC, improving cycle routes, and addressing car parking on campus and on surrounding streets.

How long will the survey run for? The survey will run on Tuesday  12 June only.



Parking reminder!

Be careful when parking around the streets surrounding campus! On many of the surrounding streets, especially on the Clyde Rd side of University, the City Council bans parking from March-November. Don’t get caught out and ticketed by parking on one of these streets!

If you do want to purchase a parking permit then these are still available from the UC Security office. The charges for a permit are as follows:

If you don’t want to commit to a permit you can buy a daily coupon, or use pay and display.
