Student Association


Association of Students at UCOL (AS@U)

The Association of Students at UCOL (AS@U) is your student union. AS@U provides advocacy and representation for students at UCOL and on a national level. AS@U also organizes Orientation, fundraisers, and other fun events and initiatives that you can get involved with. 

AS@U holds yearly elections for a Student President and Vice Presidents to represent the student body, so put your name forward if you want to make a difference for your fellow students. 

You can also volunteer to be a Student Ambassador, where you’ll learn about leadership and can share your ideas to help improve the student experience. Contact the AS@U Student President if you’re interested.

You can find the main AS@U office in The Gap on King Street, Palmerston North.
