Feeling cold? Keep warm on campus

With the cold weather beginning to settle in I’m sure many of you have had a taste of what winter will be like at your flat, and I bet you’re not excited about it. Unless you’re lucky enough to live in the halls and don’t have to worry about power bills, student life during a Christchurch winter can be tough.

If this sounds like you, have you considered spending more time at uni? Not only will you inevitably be more productive, but you’ll actually be in a warm, comfortable environment. There are a number of particularly good locations to accommodate you. Here are our top 6 warm spots:

  • Karl Popper student lounge
  • The Living Room
  • The Engine Room
  • Puaka-James Hight (and all the other libraries)
  • Erskine 001 and 010 (24/7 computer workrooms)
  • Kotuku (24/7 computer workrooms at Dovedale)

It’s important to be in a warm, dry environment in order to stay healthy during winter. If you do get a bit under the weather, make sure you’re doing everything you can to winter-proof your flat here. Leave us a comment with your favourite warm spot on campus!

The Food Show New Zealand 2015

When? 1-3 May.  Where? Horncastle Arena.

The New Zealand Food and Wine show is coming to Christchurch. It’s a weekend to celebrate your love for food, take some cooking classes and buy fancy equipment to enhance your kitchen collection.

The event comes together in many parts of the country and it’s Christchurch’s turn soon. With plenty of tickets already sold and the sales remaining high, the show’s main events are cooking classes taught by famous chefs, tasting sessions, a Q&A session with the chefs and the opportunity to buy quality food, fresh ingredients and kitchen equipment.

Christchurch is gearing up for the event and so should you! Do let us know if you’re going and what your favourite part of the show was.
