Free bike servicing on campus

Bring your bike down to C Block Lawn every Friday afternoon and get your bike serviced…. for free!

Dr Bike is a free cycle fix-it clinic available to both UC staff and students. This service provides basic cycle maintenance such as tuning brakes, oiling chains and puncture repairs.

You’ll find our student mechanics, Gina and Fiona, on C Block Lawn every Friday from 12pm – 1.30pm. Drop in sessions run during term time only.

To keep updated on Dr Bike sessions (and more!), follow the Sustainability Office on Instagram @ucsustain.

If you’re interested in seeing how Dr Bike fits into the bigger picture about planning for cyclists at UC, you might like to look at the UC Cycle Plan 2014-2022.

Keep an eye out for these two on Fridays!

How does a chance to win from over $1,500 in prizes sound?? 
The UCount 2022 is here! 

UCount is UC’s annual student experience survey! The survey asks a number of questions about the student experience focusing on both the in-classroom and wider university environment. This survey is a great way to get your voice heard by UC, so make sure you get in and have your say!

Last year 4,956 students (around 31%) completed the UCount. Will you be counted this year?

The 2022 round of the UCount survey will be live until 10th April, so there’s still plenty of time to get amongst it. Check your UCLive inbox for the survey link and go in to win heaps of prizes, including free bubble teas, bookshop goodies, UC hoodies, and maybe even a cheeky $1k travel voucher!

Do the UCount!
