Rochester and Rutherford Hall provides an outstanding residential venue for conference and sporting groups during the University vacations, accommodating up to 178 guests in single rooms.  With multiple break-out rooms we can cater for a wide range of conference requirements.  All catering is provided by our on-site chefs utilizing the skills of our team from Alliance Catering.

The Study Centre can accommodate up to 40 people. The dining room has capacity for 200 guests. A common room is also available with recreation facilities and a television lounge. The hall can provide meals and catering for any size group, ranging from morning and afternoon teas to formal dinners.

We specialize in a ‘can-do’ attitude and have run a range of events from simply accommodating guests for conferences at the University of Canterbury through to running week long residential conferences completely on-site.  Increasingly, groups are requesting to use our facilities for conferences without accommodation – we can do that too.

Talk to us about what your conference needs are.
