Some of you may have seen the traffic management signage around University Drive and Homestead Lane.
Night works will be underway in early June to replace the water mains along Ilam Road. The road closures are being organised to ensure traffic doesn’t drive into the work space where the new pipe is being laid.
University Drive will be reduced to one lane, while Homestead Lane will be completely closed to traffic, from Sunday 14 June until Thursday 2 July between the hours of 6pm to 7am.
The UC RecCentre will be closed on Monday 1st June – Queen’s Birthday. We will be open on Saturday and Sunday, with the usual booking systems in place.
Our team has been working super hard to open the facility under Alert Level 2 restrictions, and we’ve been delighted with the uptake and positive response.
So, we’re taking our own advice, and in order to look after you the best we can, we first need to look after ourselves. With this in mind, the whole team will be taking Monday 1st June off, so we can recharge our own wellbeing dials.
You can still get your exercise fix on our YouTube channel, and flip back through some of our 100+ recorded classes and workouts.

UC Rec&Sport Team
The UC Robotics Process Automation team are happy to announce that the first one-day RPA workshop will be held on Wednesday 8 July.
This one-day workshop is offered by Price Waterhouse Cooper to enhance Robotic Process Automation awareness and capability using UiPath. The course is delivered over one day, during which attendees will be given an introduction into RPA development and capabilities, Agile development methodology and an overview of how to identify processes that are good candidates for RPA.
This workshop is designed to equip attendees with the foundational skills and understanding of RPA that will enable them to understand where they are best placed to contribute to RPA adoption at UC and to identify future personal development areas that will enable that contribution. These roles can be:
- RPA Enthusiast / Change leader within teams
- RPA Developer
- RPA Implementation Manager
The format of this bootcamp suits anyone who has logical workflow thinking and is interested in become a “RPA Enthusiast”.
If you are interested in attending, please discuss this with your manager and then notify us of your interest.
For more information, please see the link for the L&D page for the bootcamp below:
The Incident Management Team has done a remarkable job over the last 10 weeks of guiding UC through what has been, and continues to be, a deeply uncertain period since the COVID-19 outbreak. NZ moved back to Level 2 – Reduce – on Wednesday, 13 May at 11:59pm and the University of Canterbury campus reopened the following day. While teaching remains online for the remainder of this semester, most of the campus is now open for staff and students.
Transition to BAU
Planning has been in place for transitioning between levels throughout the IMT response period but the focus now appropriately shifts to handing back responsibility for teaching, research, and service delivery to the business. Friday, 29 May has been recommended as the handover date as it is a natural point to do so with the end of lectures for Semester 1.
The Incident Controllers; Michel Fivet, Ripeka Tamanui-Hurunui and Steve Gibling will continue to support the transition and will be in readiness to stand up the IMT again if we need to move up alert levels in the future.
As we look ahead, a new Post COVID-19 Core group has been put in place with two key focuses; business continuity and growth opportunities for the future. A new email address for staff has also been set up email@example.com for your queries about the way we work together in a post COVID world. More information on the new work streams that have been set up will be shared next week as we move into the next phase of our response to COVID-19.
