A sense of belonging for all

Many of you will be aware of the political situation in Hong Kong. Sometimes global events impact on our students here at UC. This is a reminder that we want all students to feel that they belong to the wider UC community.

At UC we are committed to academic freedom and freedom of speech. While people have different opinions on a matter, they must express those opinions in a way that respects the rights and views of others. Without exception the University will not tolerate racism or harassment of any kind.

If you witness racist behaviour at any time you can choose to take action if you feel comfortable to do so, or you can report what you have seen by using the Report It tool or you can ring Security on 0800 823 637.

UC Wellbeing Strategy review – update

Thank you to everyone who has contributed to the UC Wellbeing Strategy review by completing the recent survey.

Student input is a vital part of the review process. Your feedback will help us understand which wellbeing services and support currently offered at UC are working well, and where there are new opportunities and room for improvement. 

Keep an eye out on Insider’s Guide | Tūpono over the coming weeks for an overview of results from the survey.
