Arcady Hall (first year, fully-catered)

(currently Bishop Julius Hall)

Currently operating as Bishop Julius Hall with a tradition of excellence since 1917, the hall will rebrand with a contemporary new look as Arcady Hall in 2022.  While continuing to offer the same support and facilities, the physical rebrand will occur over the summer period ready for new arrivals in February.  More information on the rebrand can be viewed in the Alumni Newsletter. 

Arcady Hall is a short 7 minute walk through the University gardens to the Puaka-James Hight Library, lecture theatres, Haere-roa (UC Students' Association) and other student facilities. With a study centre, common room, and a landscaped central courtyard, the hall provides a warm and friendly environment for you to obtain the best academic results and to make lifelong friends amongst the 169 residents and Residential Assistants.
