Support available for Students in isolation

We all know isolation can be hard, especially if you’re feeling unwell and don’t have everything you need to stay at home. UC wants to ensure we provide the best support for our students in isolation. For us to get you the support you need, it’s important you let us know that you are either COVID positive or a household contact. You can do that easily by completing this form: https://ucsafety.assurasoftware.net/Default.aspx 

The form only takes about five minutes to complete and is an opportunity for you to let us know what support you require to complete your isolation. Whether its study-related, financial, tech support or simply needing some help to get groceries, a friendly staff member at UC will follow-up to get you the support you need.  

The added bonus? 

UC is currently delivering welfare packs to COVID positive students which contains some essentials to help you recover. Cup of soup, lozenges, tissues and more can be delivered to your door once you’ve completed the Assura form. 

There are also 5 x $20 UCSA food vouchers up for grabs each week as spot prizes for students who complete the form! Just a little something to welcome you back to campus when you’re feeling well again! 

Teaching and learning  

While you’re isolating, you can access all your lectures and course materials online through AKO | LEARN. Here you can find your course calendar, details about assessments, connect with your classmates and read important updates from your course lecturers. Click here to find out more, or contact your course coordinator if you have any questions. 

Technology support 

If you are isolating and feeling well enough to continue with study, but don’t have a device or internet connection that is suitable, please email UCprotect@canterbury.ac.nz
