Canterbury University

Canterbury is New Zealand's second-oldest university. Established in 1873 as a college of the University of New Zealand, Canterbury College became Canterbury University College in 1933 and the University of Canterbury in 1958. Full autonomy was granted at the end of 1961.

At its original site in Central Christchurch, it occupied the classic, stone neo-Gothic buildings designed by Benjamin Mountfort that now house the Arts Centre of Christchurch. In 1949, the decision was made to transfer the University stage by stage to Ilam. The move started in 1960 and was completed in 1975.


Just over $9,000 has been granted to clubs and societies so far this year. Application forms are online but flick us an email to discuss your project beforehand. It’ll make your journey to free money much nicer.
Club Storage
We have containers available for clubs to use kinda like cupboard space. You sign a key out, get your gear and return the key. There is LIMITED space so please get in contact to get in on the opportunity.
Small change of dates, Sunday 8th to Sunday 15th July. Located around the campus, events will be happening every single day and night to get you rev’d up for semester 2. We’ve locked in the help from the larger clubs with some of our events, and if you would like to play a part, let us know. We have the basic calendar confirmed so can pair you up no problem.
The Clubs Night Market
All the good things come in pairs: rum and raisin ice cream, shoes and the Olsen twins…. so to keep up with the trend this Winterlude! We have given Clubs day a late night pass and paired it up with The Night Market. You can expect to find a plethora of market essentials such as vintage bargains, exotic cuisine, bratwurst, souvlakis, sweet treats, animals, fire breathers, live music, and over 100 clubs and societies eager to have you on board. Whether it is snowboarding or cake baking the clubs are dominating everything and ready to entertain at night time!
Date: Tuesday 10th July
Time: 6.00-8.00pm
Location: UCSA car park

That’s our blurb, so get registered for the semester two clubs day.
The Clubs Night Market is a great opportunity for you to make some cash selling products and/or services that represent what your club is about! If you are stuck for ideas we can help. If you don’t want to miss this opportunity please fill in this
registration form and return before Friday the 8th June.
Is today - 9th May, 2.30pm, The Foundry. Club presidents/representatives are strongly recommended to attend this. You are a big part of what the UCSA does, and it’s an excellent way to get up to date with UCSA info. Not to mention the FREE food and cheap drinks on offer!
Foundry/Room bookings
Contact us. We’ll get you to fill out an event form so we know all the deets then go from there. ALWAYS check the event calendar online, both to check your events dates are sweet as, and to minimise clashes of events.
Arts Week
Mad props to all who took part in Arts Week! Whether it was tinkling the Ivories, taking part in the quiz, coming along to a show, scribbling on the chalk board or making grossly inappropriate poems with the magnetic poetry – we had a blast! I’m looking forward to next year already!
BandSoc and UCSA presents: Battle of the Bands
Heats were held on Saturday at The Foundry. Semi finals will take place on the 11th May & 18th May, 6pm
Winter Wonderland Market
For the second time this year the Winter Wonderland Market is back on Wed 16th May! In addition to your favourites stallholders from the last Winter Wonderland check out the C.U.B.A snow sale as well as new additions; Mrs Higgins Oven Cookies, Posh Porridge, Pixie Kola clothing, Sweet Ltd (rock candy)....just to name a few
And to tail off, your individual club rep will have been in contact (except Lil Sarah’s because she’s SLACK at contact). Remember we are here for you, like raisins with rum in ice cream.
Too Da Loo!

Troop, like army troop, not dance troop, although Arts week has been brilliant!
So get down and give us 5! (minutes of your time to read this)

Yes you read that right for just 99 bucks you get tickets to the following three events!

Thursday 12 July - Ladyhawke at The Foundry
  • Friday 13 July - The Perfect Storm at The Foundry
  • Saturday 14 July - Shapeshifter with AHoriBuzz and Sunshine Sound System at The Bedford
    Electro pop goddess and New Zealand native Pip Brown aka Ladyhawke makes a welcome return to New Zealand. She will be performing her musical gems such as ‘My Delirium’, ‘Paris Is Burning’ and ‘Back Of The Van’ from her multiple Tui Award winning self-titled debut album and showcase tunes from her forthcoming album, Anxiety which will be unleashed on May the 25th.

    The Perfect Storm is on the horizon. They said it would be a once in a lifetime event. They said it would never happen again. But the clubs have laid dormant for too long and they’re breaching the banks. Jim Hickey is frothing at the mouth in anticipation. Yes on Friday the 13th of July the largest clubs on campus will go head to head on 4 different stages. They'll each be sussing out some of NZ's hottest acts so we have the perfect mix of music genres. Keep an eye on the forecast here:

    Local legends Shapeshifter are back in CHCH! The hometown heroes will be cranking out all your favourite drum & bass, jazz, funk, rock & electronica along with some new material before hussing over to Europe. Catch them while you can! They'll be supported by AHoriBuzz and Sunshine Sound System.

    These tickets are for UC students only. You will be required to show a valid Canterbury Card upon entry into each of the three events.        

    Restriction: R18
