This week, UCSA’s Post-Graduate Representative, Katie Mills, takes us for a look at some of the great club facilities in the new student building Haere-roa. Inside, you’ll find a club meeting room, printing facilities, and lots of bookable event spaces. Over the coming weeks, we’ll also take a peek inside the Ngaio Marsh Theatre, which will be another amazing club facility for shows, balls and other events.
How sustainable is Haere-roa? Turns out, very. This week, UCSA’s Engineering Rep, Olly Ng, takes a look around the new student building to check out its eco-friendly features.

In this week’s Haere-roa update, Kevin (UCSA’s International Student Rep) takes you for look around an old institution on campus – The Foundry.
This venue has been around for a long time, but come July it will make its big move across the carpark to the new student building.
There’ll be a few changes when The Foundry opens in its new location, including longer opening hours Monday to Friday. Take a look.
Now’s your chance to save yourself a seat in the iconic Ngaio Marsh Theatre – a space that holds so many incredible memories for staff, alumni and theatre-lovers nationwide.
The Save me a Seat campaign gives you a chance to claim your own slice of theatre history, with contributions of $500 will receive an engraved plate on the back of one of the rebuilt Ngaio Marsh Theatre’s seats.
So far, there’s been a fantastic response from staff and the wider community with 140 of the 320 seats already snapped up.
Your donations help the UCSA on its journey to raise Haere-roa’s $5 million shortfall so that students can own their 51% share of the new building. So far, an incredible $3 million has been raised towards the project, and they’re now on the final push to fill as much of the shortfall as possible.

Haere-roa, the new UCSA building, is getting closer to opening day.
It’s been a long journey getting to this point, involving hundreds of generous alumni and staff donors who have given nearly $3 million to our students’ 51% share of the new building.
To help staff and students get to know Haere-roa, the UCSA are doing weekly video updates on the construction. Each week will highlight a new and exciting area – everything from the iconic Ngaio Marsh Theatre to the plush new Bentley’s Lounge.
First up, UCSA President Sam Brosnahan talks about how far the building has come.
