It’s not too late to volunteer for Herea tō waka | Orientation Day (O Day) on Friday 19 February!

This is our biggest event to welcome new ākonga (students) and whānau into the UC community and staff volunteers are essential to the smooth running of this event. The Events team still needs your help!

If you are interested in volunteering but unable to do a full shift please email your preferred times to Bree Cumming at and she will work around this. Any time you can spare, even if it’s just an hour, would be so helpful. 

If you are interested, please review the roles, check with your manager and sign up here.
