Update: Uni-cycle work, Ilam fields

Please note the timeframe for completing Uni-Cycle work on Ilam fields has changed.

Work is currently being carried out on the existing path on the north side of Ilam Fields.

This work was scheduled to finish before Christmas, however due to unexpected delays with the contractor, the new expected completion date is early February.

Jeff Field Registrar standing in front of a UC hoarding showing him as a graduating student processing through central Christchurch.

Graduation ceremonies are underway this week – continuing a valued tradition at Canterbury.

UC Registrar Jeff Field is pictured in his ceremonial robes, beside hoardings showing his 1975 UC graduation procession through central Christchurch (he’s the one with the impressive flowing locks). He graduated with an MA with first class honours in Psychology.
