Located in elegant grounds on Waimairi Road, less than 10 minutes’ drive from Christchurch airport, College House is an ideal venue for conferences, workshops, weddings, and special events.

College House’s award winning architecture and elegant grounds provide a unique setting for your conference or event.

The building was designed by leading architects, Warren & Mahoney, and in recognition of its architectural value, College House has been awarded Category 1 Historic Place status by Heritage New Zealand.

College House offers conference seating and audio visual facilities for up to 200 people, with a number of additional break-out rooms suitable for smaller groups.

A full commercial kitchen readily caters for all meal requirements, from breakfast or morning tea to a formal dinner in the stunning 180-seat dining room.

159 people can be accommodated in newly renovated, comfortable, warm single rooms spread across 11 houses. There are three to five rooms on each floor which share a bathroom and a kitchen.

During university vacations, the accommodation and in-house recreational facilities (SKY TV, tennis court etc) are also perfectly suited to the longer-stay requirements of sports teams and summer school students.

With friendly and experienced staff, excellent facilities, on-site accommodation, elegant grounds and inspiring architecture, College House really is the ideal venue for your next event.

Exhibition capacity is based on 3mx3m booths.
