College House (first year, fully-catered)
Live, Study, Achieve: at College House, our job is to set you on your path to becoming everything you aspire to be.
We provide a superb home away from home, we support your academic success and we involve you in a supportive community of exceptional people like you. While UC is expanding your mind, we’ll be extending you personally.
If you are accepted to College House, it will be because we can see you have the potential to be a future leader.
You will enjoy College House’s large and spacious grounds for its 159 residents which includes 11 residential houses, a large dining hall, several multi-purposes social spaces and an all-weather tennis court. The property is bound by two streams and borders the University gardens. College House is New Zealand's oldest and most traditional university college. It retains its traditions with formal dining three nights a week during term when students wear formal dress and academic gowns.
The essence of College House is its unique community spirit, assisted by the many returning students who maintain the traditions and help organise much of College House’s social, cultural and sporting programme. View our 360° panoramas and Video Tour.
