Get connected with Rainbow support on campus

At UC, we are working to become a completely inclusive, diverse and welcoming community – where we support Rainbow students and staff, on and off campus. 

UC’s Rainbow Advisor and Coordinator are here for you. They can help you settle in, provide advice if you need someone to talk to and connect you with other Rainbow students on campus.

To talk with the Rainbow support staff, email Ari Nicholson or Kiera Webb, or drop in for a chat – you’ll find the Rainbow Coordinator in Te Ao Mārama 113

You can stay up-to-date with Rainbow events and info on campus here>

UC Chaplains – someone to talk to, someone to listen

Are you finding you need someone to talk to or just someone to listen? The UC Chaplains provide pastoral and practical support for students regardless of your background or beliefs.

They are there for you when you need someone to talk to, they offer quiet, meditative spaces, can help you on your spiritual journey or just shout you a coffee.

Since they are independent you can trust them to be impartial and keep things in confidence. They are great listeners and provide expert advice for any problems you bring to them.

The UC Chaplains can also provide support in civic life with leading services and helping with rituals, opening and closing of buildings, memorials and blessings after deaths and blessing of important spaces.

UC Chaplains are there to be someone who understands who you are and where you come from.

You find the contact details for the Chaplains here and find out more about what they do.

Know the Code

As a student you’ll try new things, make mistakes and learn from them, but you still have a responsibility to keep yourself and others safe and not bring UC into disrepute. 

The Student Code of Conduct is a key document that reflects our values. When you enrolled at UC you would have agreed to comply with UC’s regulations and policies, including the Student Code of Conduct.

If you haven’t already, take a look at Know the Code which sets out your rights and responsibilities and aligns with the Student Code of Conduct. It highlights the partnership between UC and students to provide a safe learning, living and working environment.

It’s all about knowing your responsibilities, keeping yourself safe,  looking out for your mates and being a good neighbour. 

More information about the Student Code of Conduct is available here.
