What’s on at the UCSA to help you through exams

Exams are coming up, so to help you unwind, your Students’ Association has a handy line-up of events, little giveaways and services.

Stress Less Week

Stress Less launches on Tuesday 8 June with a week of study-time giveaways and little activities (think: fruit drops, a resilience workshop, and coffee). Find out more.

Borrow Something

Free Exam Breakfasts

It’s a staple of the uni calendar. If you’ve got an exam on and you haven’t had time for brekkie, check out our free breakfasts starting from 14 June in Haere-roa (available while stocks last; limit 1 per person, per day). The menu is TBC, so keep an eye on our social media channels for updates and times.
