150 years

14 July 2023

In 2023, Te Whare Wānanga o Waitaha | University of Canterbury proudly celebrated 150 years of accessible education. We marked the amazing milestone with a year-long programme of events to celebrate our past and look to our future - Ka titiro whakamuri, ki te anga whakamua | Guided by the Past, Shaping the Future.


Over the course of 2023, UC hosted more than 40 separate events across Waitaha Canterbury and around the world that attracted more than 10,000 attendees to celebrate UC’s anniversary. These included concerts, conferences, public talks, art exhibitions, sporting events, and various events for students, staff, alumni and the community.

Learn about how we marked the momentous occasion and how we plan to keep celebrating into the next 150 years.
