Celebrating Diversity, Community, and Academic Success
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 7 Residential
Assistants. We are based in the UC accommodation residential village, a short 7-minute walk from
the main teaching campus.
We provide 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.
