Unique heritage setting
A UNESCO award-winning heritage building with proven acoustics and modern heating, lighting and sound. Built as a hall for Canterbury College (now the University of Canterbury), the Great Hall has been strengthened and restored post-earthquake. The large, north-facing stained glass Memorial Window was originally installed in 1938 and is comprised of 4,000 individual pieces of glass. The window is dedicated to the memory of all staff and students who served in WWI.
