University Of Canterbury Uni Hall

University Hall offers a supportive and fun environment in your first year of study. With 535 residents, you are bound to meet other residents who are studying the same courses as you, or have similar interests, whether they are sporting, cultural or musical.  

The hall offers the flexibility of single-gender or non-alcohol floors.  There are three room options, the older Retro rooms (standard or premium) or the newer Ritz rooms.  Some Ritz rooms are apartment-style. 

Each Residential Assistant has a key group of residents to support throughout the first year.  A mix of academic tutorials and an active social programme encourages a healthy work-life balance.

With residents studying a wide range of degrees and with a number of international students, you will gain access to diverse ideas and cultures.
