Sonoda Christchurch Campus

Offering a smaller close-knit community with just 110 rooms, Sonoda will be a dedicated fully-catered first-year hall of residence in 2019.  

Sonoda Christchurch Campus is a modern accommodation facility with Japanese-inspired landscaped grounds. Depending on demand, alcohol-free and/or single-gender apartments are available. View our 360° panoramas.

As a first-year hall of residence, Sonoda provides 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 lunch, with breakfast and dinner served on site. 

Traditionally a self-catered facility, this year Sonoda provides a fully-catered 41-week contract to over 70 first year students at the same rate as a University Hall Ritz room - $15,047 NZD plus a deposit of $900 NZD.
