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.  

Some recent Arcady Hall student feedback:

"I love Arcady. I love the RAs, the people, my room. It is a great transition from leaving home. Thank you"

"Such a lovely community environment"

"The staff are lovely"

"The Hall had a very good reputation for having a study-focused student community....I found this appealing"
