Dovedale townhouses student accommodation
The University of Canterbury is committed to providing accommodation options for all students throughout their university journey.
In December 2016 UC signed a Design Build contract with Naylor Love for 90 new accommodation beds in 16 two-storey townhouses which are being designed by Christchurch Architects Stufken and Chambers.
These are to be built on the Dovedale Campus tennis courts next to the Campus Living Villages managed Sonoda Christchurch Campus accommodation.
Work commenced on site in April 2017, and using factory prefabrication technology, the townhouses will be completed prior to Christmas 2017 with students moving into the new accommodation in February 2018.
