Heading into your 1st year at UC?

Toga is the ultimate freshers rite of passage. It’s a crowd favourite every year.

Transport yourself back in time with a traditional ancient TOGA, so rip off your bed sheet and throw on some glitter, it’s time to be a god!

Featuring some great acts each year, we bring you a party like no other.

Nothing quite says Summer like an outdoor music festival. Salty days, balmy nights and frothy bands. The Ultimate Summer vibe.

Summer Stein is recommended to every music festival addict! Each year we aim to bring an unbelievably stacked line – up with a solid festival atmosphere.

Get your festival squad together!

Summer Stein

Mardi Gras

The other festival to make the Orientation cut, Mardi Gras really knows how to make an entrance.

Get dressed up in your green, purple and gold, and cover yourself with glitter and beads, because this is the carnival of music festivals!

Our clubs really know how to put on a show, so make sure you check out what they’re peddling!

Clubs are the real social scene here at UC, and this is your chance to get involved. Make sure you don’t miss out!

Clubs Day

Plus More

Kia Ora Bro

Be inspired by traditional storytelling, ceremonial dance and basket weaving, while sampling some traditional Kiwi kai.

Learn about Maori and Pacific arts & crafts, then grab a beanbag, sit back and watch an iconic kiwi film outdoors under the stars!
