Sonoda Christchurch Campus

Small and friendly, with a maximum of 114 full-time residents, Sonoda Christchurch Campus is a modern accommodation facility with Japanese-inspired landscaped grounds. Sonoda will be well suited to you, regardless of your age or discipline. Depending on demand, alcohol-free and/or single-gender options are available.  View our 360° panoramas.

Offering a smaller close-knit community, Sonoda will be providing pastoral care, events and activities suited to a younger more vibrant and lively community.  University Hall is a convenient stop half way between Sonoda and the main Ilam campus, for breakfast or dinner.
