The new home of UC students

Opening July 2019, Haere-roa's the culmination of two years’ of construction work, which began after the Christchurch earthquakes damaged the original UCSA building beyond repair.

As part of UC's health precinct, Haere-roa will be a space for students to socialise, enjoy amazing events, and get stuck into clubs. It'll also be a community space, open to bookings outside of university term times.

Haere-roa, home to:

The iconic Ngaio Marsh Theatre

Bentley's Lounge

The Foundry

Club facilities

UCSA Offices, and more!

UCSA President: Help us build Haere-roa

The UCSA aims to create the best student experience possible so when the 2011 earthquakes damaged our existing UCSA building, we knew we had to put plans in place to build our students a new home.

Our new building is set to be finished in mid 2019 and has been designed to be a state-of-the art space that will be the home of our social activities, events, clubs, meetings and businesses.

Unfortunately, we can’t build it on our own. The UCSA, UC and insurance settlements have already provided 80% of the funds needed, but there is still a $3M project shortfall we need to fundraise towards our share of the building.

Now is the time to make a contribution towards the future of the UCSA to ensure we have a permanent base we can take ownership of. We invite you to join us on our journey towards building our new home by partnering with us today.

With sincere thanks,

Sam Brosnahan, UCSA President
