The University of Canterbury is only minutes from 306 Motel Apartments, which makes it an ideal stay when visiting students. 

It is New Zealand's second oldest university, and covers 76 hectares in the garden setting of Ilam.  With expansive green spaces and gardens, UC builds off the natural beauty by which it is surrounded. This includes Christchurch's iconic Avon river which meanders alongside University Drive through the campus.

The campus is easy to stroll, cycle or skate around and is linked together by shared walkways. For those cycling and running to UC there are secure bike stands, lockers and showers available on campus.
