Health and Safety reporting

Did you know students are now able to report Health and Safety concerns via Assura?

The reporting form is now live at 

Why would you use this form? 

This Health and Safety reporting includes risks and hazards on campus. These risks and hazards could include, but are not limited to: 

  • Broken windows
  • Light fixtures falling from ceiling 
  • A building flaw that could cause an injury
  • An avoidable injury that has happened. 

If you see something, say something.  Log into Assura

In this picture is what you’ll see when you login. 






Has something happened that doesn’t feel right to you? Are you unhappy with a decision?

UC is committed to providing a teaching and learning environment that you feel comfortable in, and we have a fair and transparent process in place to help you. If you want to raise a concern, complaint or grievance, you can make a formal complaint or report it anonymously online. 

How to formally raise a concern 

Here’s a step by step guide on how you can raise a concern at UC: 

  1. If you feel comfortable doing so, try to talk to the person who made the decision or whose actions have caused your concern. Alternatively, you could get in touch with the Dean, Head of Department/School, Service Unit Manager or your Class Representative
  2. Talk to the UCSA Advocacy and Welfare team or UC’s Grievance Coordinator. They can support you work towards a resolution with the person involved
  3. The next step is to lodge a formal complaint in writing with the UC Grievance Coordinator or UCSA Student AdvocateAtawhai Ākonga | Student CareUC Māori or the Pacific Development Team can support you to prepare your statement. 
  4. An investigation will then take place and you’ll be kept informed of progress. UC aims to resolve issues within four weeks
  5.  You’ll be told the outcome of the investigation, and how/why this decision was made.  You’ll also receive information about how you can appeal this decision.
