Donate to support our facilities and help us rebuild

While the students and the academic teaching staff are the heart and soul of the university the buildings and facilities support that experience.

UC is looking not to simply replace what was lost, but redefine our campus into a modern and well-equipped environment that’s relevant to teaching and our community in the 21st century. Financial support is essential to this vision.

Your gift to the University of Canterbury will ensure that UC continues to provide vital services in our community and a world-class learning experience for students.

UC Arts in the former Chemistry Building, the Arts Centre

UC Arts, located in the former Chemistry building, is home to the new Teece Museum of Classical Antiquities, which is now open to the public.

The building will provide student learning in classics and music, including increased opportunities for music performances.

Donations of any size from our alumni and friends throughout the world will be very gratefully received.

The University and the Department of Classics has a number of ongoing needs and opportunities for support which have been identified such as support for the School Outreach programme - bringing the Classics collection to life for high school pupils, a display case, the display and ongoing preservation of one of the mosaics, or support for the preservation of the Logie Collection.

The Townsend Teece Telescope

As a result of the Christchurch Earthquake on 22 February 2011, the Observatory at the Christchurch Arts Centre is currently closed. The funds to restore the telescope have been generously donated by UC Alumnus Professor David Teece, but funds are still sought for education and outreach programmes and future maintenance.
