Rochester and Rutherford Hall (first year, fully-catered)
Rochester and Rutherford Hall is set on extensive grounds laid out with established trees and gardens, and has accommodation for 192 residents in three four-storied buildings plus an additional two houses located on the perimeter of hall grounds. All rooms have been upgraded including the Recreation Room and are double-glazed. The hall offers you a site that is large enough to be interesting and small enough for you to get to know everyone.
It is the closest hall to the new UC Students' Association building, the Student Events Centre and the Health Centre. The local shopping centres are just over ten minutes’ walk away, and the hall is within ten minutes' drive of Christchurch International Airport. View our 360° Panoramas and Video Tour.
