Central Library open hours during exams

The Central Library has extended open hours during exams. Starting Friday 25 May we will be open 8.00am-11.00pm every day until Friday 22 June, when we will return to our usual open hours.

In support of our students sitting exams the library staff would like to wish you all the best.  We will be providing free tea and coffee during the exam period to help you through, just remember to bring your own cup!

If you experience back pain from sitting for long hours, we have workshops starting this Friday 25 May in The Den at Central Library. The workshop starts at 12.00pm and runs for only 20 minutes, and best of all, it is free.

On tonight: University Challenge info and preliminary quiz

Since University Challenge returned to New Zealand screens in 2014, UC has not finished lower than 2nd and have won twice. Now we’re looking for the next team to continue this impressive run!  Do you think you have what it takes? Come along to the Info and Preliminary Quiz Night, Thursday 17 May, 6pm at LAWS108.

If you’re a genius at general knowledge, everyone wants you on their team for pub quizzes, you know your Shakespeare inside out, or maybe you’ve just got lightning fast reflexes, we want you! You don’t need any quizzing experience, and the team is open to all students, from first-year to postgrad.

As part of the team you’ll be training with other like-minded people, before taking it to the other universities. Make this year your year, be part of a once in a lifetime, unforgettable experience.
