Get vaccinations sorted at the UCSA Summer Starter Expo!

This year UC and UCSA has partnered with Te Whatu Ora | Health New Zealand to provide FREE Meningococcal vaccinations for students.
UC strongly recommends the vaccination of all students.
Young people are particularly vulnerable to Meningococcal Disease and its potentially devastating effects, including Meningitis and Septicaemia, which strike fast and can be deadly. Long-term effects can include limb amputation, hearing loss, brain injury and permanent skin scarring if not diagnosed and treated in time.
Diagnosis can be difficult as symptoms can often mimic those of the common cold.

Te Whatu Ora | Health New Zealand’s vaccination drop-in clinic will be located in Bentleys (located in Haere-roa, above the Foundry) between 10am – 2pm on Thursday 29 February.
The clinic will also offer free HPV and MMR immunisations. These vaccinations are in the childhood immunisation schedule, but you may have missed out on them. Check your online health portal or ask your GP if you’re not sure.
If you have any questions you can chat to the Te Whatu Ora team who will have a stall located in Haere-roa on the day

Are you finishing your studies at UC? Stay connected at the UC RecCentre

Even though your studies at UC may be finishing, your journey with us doesn’t have to end!     The RecCentre welcomes members from the community, and we also give UC alumni a Friends of UC discounted rate. 

If you aren’t returning to study in 2024, all undergraduate UC 2023 memberships will expire on the 5th of March, so you won’t’ be able to access our service without a new membership. If you’d like to keep using the gym you’ve come to know and love with your mates, you can buy a membership, like you would any other gym.

(If you are re-enrolled for 2024, you don’t have to do anything – your membership stays active).  

Friends of UC Memberships 

If you’re graduating, you can choose a Friends of UC Membership, in either 3 or 12mths.   We also offer off-peak memberships if you think you’ll only come in before 3pm. 

Community Memberships 

If you’re taking a break or not returning to UC, but not graduating either, then you can grab a community membership.  These are also available in 3 or 12mth terms, and an off-peak option is available as well. 

All membership types have a one-off joining fee of $49, which includes a starter pack to help you in the next phase of your wellness journey.  

One- time offer for your first non-student membership with us 

We’d love to see you continue with us at the RecCentre, where you can keep coming with your friends and doing the classes you love.  To help your transition from student to working life, we’d like to offer you a great deal:

Buy 3 months from us, and we’ll give you 3 months additional for free.  

We’ll keep this offer open to you for all of March, so you have plenty of time to look at your options and make the right decision for you.

Space audit inside classrooms

A space audit will be taking place on weekdays between Monday 11 March until Friday 22 March between 9.00am – 5.30pm.

This means surveyors wearing hi-vis vests with ‘Facilities Management’ on the back will be entering UC’s working, learning and common spaces to perform a head count – this includes your classrooms.

They will not be taking any photos nor requiring students’ names, this is simply a counting exercise. The team will try to minimise disruption as much as possible.
