Who are the UCSA?
So, you are heading to Te Whare Wānanga o Waitaha | University of Canterbury (UC) in 2023? Make sure
you get to know the UCSA during ORI ’23, and throw yourself into student life!
But what actually is the UCSA?
We are your students’ association at UC! Based in Haere-roa, we are at the heart of the student
community. Throughout the year we support students through our Advocacy and Welfare team, help clubs
hold events, and dish up a whole heap of fun giveaways and events just for you! From hardship grants
and dental subsidies, borrow a bike and Metrocards, to Mono Nights and Random acts of kindness, we
do it all.
The UCSA doesn’t just run ORI! We love a free BBQ, wellbeing events, and events for international
students. We’ll shout FREE Exam Breakfasts and other treats to get you through those stressful
study times. We celebrate student excellence at our awards season, and when the time is right,
we know how to party at Mono Nights. To top it all off, we hold an epic end of year festival to
see off lectures. Tea Party is the biggest party of the year and is not to be missed!
Our events calendar is always packed, and there is something for everyone. See what we have
coming up for 2023 so far here:
