If you’re staying in Christchurch for the summer and need a place to stay, then continue reading…

Whether your current accommodation contract has come to an end or you’re looking for some temporary accommodation over the summer; you may be spoilt for choice or have no options. Irrespective, this post should hopefully help solve that.

UC is offering a variety of accommodation options both on and off campus for the summer at very affordable prices. A list of available options and prices can be found here: http://www.canterbury.ac.nz/accom/halls/summer.shtml

In case you’re new or don’t have the slightest clue about the places on offer, these little bits should help (it’s best that you either go have a look for yourself and make a decision, or just contact the respective offices if you’re short for time):

  1. University Hall: Located by the Ilam Fields on Maidstone Road, this place is the  closest to campus. The fairly recently built blocks come in lots of six with a kitchen, lounge area and two showers.
  2. Ilam Apartments: Located on Homestead Lane, just by the Ilam       Gardens, this is an extremely ideal and comfortable location. Each apartment has either five or six rooms and one or two showers respectively including a lounge, kitchen and in-house laundry      for most of them.
  3. Waimari Village: The newest accommodation on campus, this comes as a fully furnished house for a minimum of a month’s stay.
  4. Waitakari Village: Located off campus, this too is a fully furnished, fully catered accommodation option that is very affordable.

Summer should be fun and comfortable and all these accommodation options are guaranteed to deliver both!
