UCOL campuses are organising pōwhiri and orientation activities to welcome new students and staffs. Here are the orientation week events at the Whanganui campus.

Note: The dates and programmes are tentative and is subject to COVID-19 traffic light settings.

Monday 21 February – Pōwhiri/Welcome
Location: Pakaitore/Moutoa Gardens
Time: 9.30am

The pōwhiri is how we welcome new students to the UCOL whānau and returning students back to campus. New students please meet in UCOL Atrium. Returning students please meet at Pakaitore.

The pōwhiri will be followed by a shared kai (meal) on the UCOL campus forecourt.

Tuesday 22 February - The Long Lunch
Location: The Atrium
Time: 11.30am-1pm

A great way to break the ice and meet new people is to share a meal together. Let UCOL treat you to a delicious lunch while you get to know your fellow students. Don’t worry if you’re feeling shy - we’ll have conversation starters ready for you. Vegetarian options will be available and we’ll have prizes for some lucky diners.

Wednesday 23 February - Community Connect Mini Mall
Location: The Atrium
Time: 11am-2pm

Don’t shop for stuff, shop for connections when we bring the community to UCOL.  Our students benefit from a huge amount of support, from inside and outside UCOL. Meet some of the community organisations and UCOL team members who can help you through your journey. We’ll also have free food, games, and giveaways.
