The University of Canterbury Club is a social club for staff, postgraduate students, alumni, and other people associated with the University of Canterbury. We are based in the historic Ilam Homestead and offer a bar service with an excellent range of craft beer, wine, and spirits to our members and their guests. We also run a number of events for members, such as regular BBQs, beer tastings, and quiz nights. We also run the South Island Beer Festival twice a year.

We're still in the process of getting this website up and running, but if you're interested in joining the Club then you can download a membership application form, fill it out and return it to us. You're more than welcome to visit us to have a look around before joining. You will need to be signed in as a guest, so either come with an existing member, or talk to the bar manager who will sort it out.

We are also able to take bookings for both University-related events and external events. If you're interested, please get in touch with the bar manager, Charles Swettenham, by emailing manager@staffclub.canterbury.ac.nz, ringing (03) 364 2499, or coming to visit in person.
