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
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

The new menu takes you from brunch to dinner, with tasty savoury and sweet options, as well as meals to cater for a range of dietary needs. Some of the standouts include fresh spring rolls and hearty bacon and egg pie.
