Arcady Hall is an independent, small hall in Ilam, servicing students studying at the University of Canterbury. We have 170 students staying with us each year, including a team of 6 Residential Assistants. We are based in the UC accommodation residential village, a short 10 minute walk from the main teaching campus.
The Hall values diversity, community, growth, creativity and academic passion. We have a range of activities and events throughout the year, great meals, themed dinners, a strong pastoral focus and a lot of fun along the way.
Our Mission Statement is:
"To foster an inclusive community which celebrates diversity and values academic success"
We often get asked what we look for in a student. We look for people that share in our values and are wanting to be involved in our small community.
