The UCSA holds a zero tolerance towards any forms of harassment at our events. We are committed to placing the safety of our employees, contractors, attendees and public above all else to ensure that UCSA Tea Party ‘23 delivers the best possible end to the University year!

We hope that the following information equips you with the knowledge about what you can do if you feel unsafe at UCSA Tea Party ’23.

Feeling unsafe at Tea Party ‘23?

Our friendly event staff and security are always around to help! At any point if you feel unsafe, intimidated, or harassed, please make sure you let us know, by reaching out to any staff on site or if you’re after something more discreet use our number below or ask for an angel shot.

During the event you can call or text 027 UCSA 111 (027 8272 111) with a description of what’s happening. This will go directly to a Senior member of the UCSA Events Team who will be able to help, whatever your situation may be.

Angel Shot

Asking for an Angel Shot is another way of telling us staff that you’re feeling harassed whilst at UCSA Tea Party ‘23, and at other events throughout the year. Our event, bar and security staff know that if you ask for an Angel Shot, this means you’re distressed and need assistance. We ‘ll discreetly take you to a safe space and support you in choosing how you’d like to proceed.

Red Frogs

Are an epic team of volunteers who provide free water, food, a chill out space and even walk you home if you’re in a hall or flat in the immediate Ilam area. They'll be at UCSA Tea Party ‘23 to help make you feel safe.


It wouldn't be Tea Party without FREE FOOD. Head to the FREE FOOD TENT whenever you feel like it – they’ll always be serving fried goodness to keep you going throughout the day.

Thirsty? There will always be a water station nearby – because the aim is to have a good time and a long time!

Drug Checking

As part of wider alcohol and drug harm minimisation strategies, anonymous and free drug testing will be carried out by 'Know Your Stuff', a community organisation committed to reducing drug related harm at festivals and events.

The UCSA does not condone drug use of any kind, but we are aware of the realities that exist. Because of this, we feel harm prevention methods are necessary. Although we have little control over the intent for use, Know Your Stuff and the NZ Drug Foundation provide a service which helps to provide education and information to reach the same objective.

The date and time for this service will be announced on socials soon.
