A message from the Proctor: fires, glass and roofs

For 2017 Campus Watch and the Proctor’s Office will continue to address fires in North Dunedin. Anyone caught lighting or adding to an existing fire will be referred through the Provost to the Vice Chancellor for punishment. This process may include an exclusion from the UoO.

Glass breaking continues to be an area of focus, as it has been in recent years. This is an anti-social issue that impacts on neighbours and others who frequent North Dunedin, such as children attending school and daycare.

For 2017 we will also be focussing on addressing students climbing to roof tops. There is a significant safety risk involved here, with plenty of examples in recent years of students seriously injuring themselves falling from a roof.

Code of conduct memory refresher.

Rubbish Skips – Friday 31 March

Skips will be out on Friday 31 March, from 9am to 4pm so you can get rid of all that stuff you can’t put out in your black sacks or recycling bins.

If the skip located closest to your flat/College is full, please take your rubbish to another skip at these locations.

If you can, it’s probably best to get rid of your rubbish before 3.30pm, as skips which are taken away to be emptied towards the end of the collection period may not be replaced with a new skip.

Please make yourself familiar with the DCC rubbish collection service requirements for using DCC rubbish bags only. You may have discovered by now that non-DCC rubbish bags will not be collected!

Thanks for your help with keeping the campus tidy during 2017.
