Welcome To Rochester and Rutherford Hall.
The year of 2013 is coming to a close and 2014 is close to beginning!
The residents of 2013 have left and the hall is very quiet except for the noise of some contractors. The housekeepers are busy preparing rooms for upcoming conferences and we are all working through lists preparing for next year. To our 2013 students – thank you for a great year, it started off in difficult circumstances but you all coped and cooperated admirably. R&R wish you all every success with your exams and trust that your summer is safe and rewarding.
To our 2014 students – you will be receiving quite a bit of documentation from us over the summer. Please make sure you read it and ask questions where things are not clear. We look forward to seeing you on February 19th. Timings for registration are: 9am-12:15, 1:30-4:30pm. Lunch is at 12:30pm and all are welcome to attend this lunch including parents. Please make sure your travel arrangements are such that you can register during these times. It is a busy day but a really good day when the hall suddenly bursts back into life.
Rochester and Rutherford is a Hall of Residence associated with the University of Canterbury. It provides accommodation for 178 men and women, both undergraduates and graduates, in a collegiate setting.
