Welcome to

sonoda village

Live on campus at the University of Canterbury

Just a short walk to the main University of Canterbury campus, Sonoda Village is ideally situated. Sonoda is tucked away in the picturesque grounds of the University of Canterbury, College of Education. Benefiting from being on the quiet side of town, Sonoda is still just a short drive away from the heart of the growing and innovative city of Christchurch.
