UCSA Opens Up For Level 2

During the national lockdown, the University of Canterbury Students’ Association (UCSA) shifted many of our services online and began to work remotely, but as lockdown lifts, we’re taking steps to reopen some on-campus facilities like select food and beverage outlets and Haere-roa, the UCSA building.

So what changes will you notice from Monday 18 May?

Haere-roa

Haere-Roa will be opening its doors to students once again, but please remember that you’ll need your Canterbury Card to swipe yourself into the building. The UCSA’s reception will be open on Level 1.

Food and beverage

We’re also happy to announce that you’ll be able to grab your caffeine-fix or a bite to eat, Monday to Friday, from:

  • Nuts & Bolts, 9AM–3PM,
  • Collective, 9AM–2.30PM, and
  • Chilton’s, 9AM–4PM.

These outlets will be takeaway only, and we have full safety plans in place for each site. We can’t wait to welcome you back, and we appreciate your continued support.
