Free pizza at the Community Garden Open Day!

Te Ngaki o Waiutuutu (Waiutuutu Community Garden) is having an open day, and you’re invited!

This is a great opportunity to explore and learn about UC’s beautiful community garden, meet some like-minded people, and be the first to learn about our upcoming workshops. We’ll be firing up the rocket oven to make some yummy pizzas, along with sharing some other yummy kai. 🍕

Drop in between 12pm – 2pm on Friday 23 February.

Our garden is located just off Engineering Road, along the Waiutuutu stream pathway. Learn more and see a map for how to find the garden here.

Save the Facebook event so you don’t forget!

Free bike skill workshops

Want to start biking to uni?

If you haven’t been on a bike for a while or want to take your confidence and skills to a new level, then our free bike skill workshops are for you!

Sessions range from covering the basics such as how to fit a helmet and use gears correctly, to helping you travel through intersections, and navigating on-road cycle lanes in busier traffic.

The workshops are completely free and held on and around UC campus during lunchtime. Loan bikes and helmets can be provided on request.

Three sessions are coming up for our UC community in March:

  • Tuesday 5 March, 12pm – 1pm
  • Tuesday 12 March, 12pm – 1pm
  • Tuesday 19 March, 12pm – 1pm

Registration is essential as spots are limited. Please contact for more details and to register your interest.

Try Hip-Hop, Ballet or Boxing at the RecCentre

In addition to our popular group fitness classes, UC Rec&Sport also offer a small selection of specialty courses, where you can build new skills and new friendships over five weeks together.

Specialty Courses available in Term 1

You could brush up your Ballet skills, bust out your Hip-Hop moves or get Boxing fit.  Courses run for five weeks, with one session per week. These courses are small in size, so you get really close instruction from experienced teachers. The content is tailored to the group at an introductory level, with intermediate offered if there is demand.

All courses begin the week beginning Monday 26th February 2024, finishing in the last week of term 1.  Registrations are open now, and they will fill fast!

 How to enrol
  • Visit the specialty courses pages to check the timetable to choose the course you can attend.
  • Register via the membership portal (you’ll find a link to this on those pages too)
  • On your next visit to the RecCentre, pay the course fee at our reception desk 

We aim to keep these specialty courses affordable, and at the discounted student rate of $42.50 for boxing and $55 for ballet and hip-hop, they are well below what you’ll pay elsewhere.
