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 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.
University Book Shop (UBS)
Booklovers will be glad to know that UBS is reopening from Monday 18 May. And if you’re off-campus, you can also browse their goods from the comfort of your own home, through the UBS website.
Other UCSA services
If you’d like to know more about the UCSA’s other services under Level 2, please head to the COVID-19 page on our website for regular updates.

We’ve given the Cup Library a makeover, and we’d love to hear what you think!
A beginners guide to using the Cup Library
Step One: Grab whatever funky mug catches your eye
Step Two: Order your hot drink, and enjoy the BYO cup discount that comes with it
Step Three: Sip your coffee smugly, knowing you’ve just saved using an unnecessary takeaway coffee cup (that could have otherwise ended up in landfill)
Step Four: Pop your used cup in the ‘dirty’ tray (and don’t forget to say a big thanks to the Nuts n Bolts staff!)
Step Five: Repeat!
We hope you enjoy using the Cup Library as much as we do! If you want to know more about reducing single use plastics in your life, keep your eyes out for our campaigns and giveaways as we gear up to celebrate Plastic Free July.

The appeal and potential for vegan and vegetarian food is expanding to include a much larger consumer base seeking healthier foods.
To this end Café 1894 has increased its offerings, all served in compostable packaging.
We have a delicious Vegan Polenta Bruschetta w/a Olive Tapenade, fresh rice paper rolls, moreish Spicy Tofu Taco Salad, scrummy Flourless Chocolate Torte and Gluten Free Citrus Tarts to name a few.
Café 1894 continues to deliver wonderful coffee from Common Good, a company committed to an ethical sustainable business.
There is also a larger variety of slices and cakes that cater to the gluten and dairy free as well as those with a hunger for the divinely sweet!

However, the Shilling Club will be open from 9am till 6pm, and the Hard Hat Café will be open from 8am till 3.30pm.
