Canterbury University – Rehua
UC’s former Commerce building has been transformed into a new purpose-built space designed for contemporary teaching and learning.
The building’s leading-edge facilities provide large flexible learning spaces and feature the latest technology. Formal teaching spaces complement informal and social spaces to create a vibrant student-focussed learning environment.
Facilities include meeting and project rooms, breakout areas, a cultural function space, health clinics, a café, social spaces throughout the building’s seven floors, a light-filled atrium connecting the north and south blocks, and a ‘makerspace’ to create, invent and learn in.
Occupied for teaching in 2019, Rehua is the central hub for education, entrepreneurship and executive development, where students from all disciplines are supported in their studies and their professional and personal growth.
The building is the New Education Building (NEB), an extensive EQ repair and re-purpose.
