If you're caught without, ask for a tampon or pad!
If you experience menstruation/periods, you will have probably had a time (or two, or three) when you
needed a tampon or pad, but you couldn't find one in your bag.
Well, the UCSA is here to help with the Menstruation Emergency service.
All you have to do is visit UCSA reception (level two, Haere-roa) and say you'd like some
tampons/pads. If you prefer, you can say “I have a M.E.” instead. One of our respectful and
discreet staff will sort you out. It’s that easy.
We have both regular and super varieties available. Every pack contains two products, and the tampon pack
includes a panty liner as well.
