Rochester and Rutherford Hall (first year, fully-catered)
Rochester and Rutherford Hall is set on grounds laid out with established trees and gardens, and has accommodation for 192 residents in three four-storied buildings plus an additional two houses located on the perimeter of hall grounds. All rooms have been upgraded, including the Recreation Room, and are double-glazed. The hall offers you a site that is large enough to be interesting yet small enough for you to get to know everyone.
It is the closest hall to Haere-roa (UC Students' Association) and the Health Centre. The local shopping centres are just over ten minutes’ walk away, and the hall is within ten minutes' drive of Christchurch International Airport.
