UC's 150th anniversary

UC Sign

In 2023, the University of Canterbury (UC) | Te Whare Wānanga o Waitaha will celebrate its 150th anniversary. A number of special events and activities are planned to mark this significant milestone. We look forward to warmly welcoming our alumni and friends back to campus.

If you would like more information about the 150th anniversary and to be kept up-to-date with news and details please email alumni@canterbury.ac.nz.

Among the special projects relating to the University’s anniversary is the establishment of a research fund in perpetuity. The new Endowed Research Fund will complement UC’s existing teaching fund, the Erskine programme – which supports over 70 visiting academics from around the world each year – and a number of endowed scholarship funds available across all UC colleges and at many levels of study.

We are looking forward to speaking with alumni and friends of UC about celebrating the launch of the Endowed Research Fund at UC’s 150th anniversary in 2023.
