About the UC Sustainability Office

The UC Sustainability Office is an on-campus hub for individuals and groups interested in how they can create positive change and promote sustainable practices within the University of Canterbury and wider community. The Sustainability Office organizes events, communicates pathways for change, promotes sustainability and supports a network of individuals and working groups across campus and wider community. We are a resource for staff, students and the wider community who want to connect with sustainable-minded others and create change in their own lives and spaces.

UC Sustainability Office roles are:

  • To help people see how sustainability relates to their area of work, research, studies and their wider lives;
  • To act as a catalyst for the University in pursuing its charter intentions regarding sustainability and environmental leadership;
  • To foster a culture of people prepared to make a difference in creating socio-ecologically sustainable societies;
  • To value, recognise and reward people for sustainable efforts and participation.

For a comprehensive insight into what we do and how you can get involved, see our website.


The UC Sustainability Office is located in the Facilities Management Building (off Engineering road), Room 220. View our location on a campus map.
