Christchurch Etymology - Where did Christchurch get its name? 

On 27 March 1848, the name "Christchurch'' was agreed on at the first meeting of the Canterbury Association. The city was named after Christ Church, Oxford, the college which the founder John Robert Godley had attended.  Sometimes, "ChCh" is used as an abbreviation of "Christchurch".

What is Christchurch famous for?

The city is always evolving, to give locals and visitors new things to explore every minute. At Christchurch, you can enjoy street art and innovative projects, a bustling hospitality scene, and established green spaces. Christchurch is the newest city in the world, and it’s time for you to rediscover the world with its newest parts and get to know its latest secrets. Maybe you can start doing that by booking student accommodation in Christchurch. Sounds good?

Christchurch location 

Christchurch is the largest city on the South Island of New Zealand, with 383,200 residents in the urban area and 394,700 people in the territorial authority. It is also considered the second-most populous city in New Zealand with Auckland being the first. 

Why Choose Student Accommodation in Christchurch?

Besides discovering new cities in the world, choosing student accommodation in Christchurch will let you live your best fun life. Lots of events and festivals are being held monthly and most of them are free, which let you enjoy your time even without a cent. Two of the best festivals you’ll need to go to are 

1. The Walking Festival 

The festival is held from 17 April to 2 May, which gives you all the time you need to participate at your desired time. 

2. Electric Avenue Festival 

This festival is one of the biggest festivals in Christchurch and everyone waits for it year after year. It keeps growing bigger year after year with more than 25 acts, multiple stages, and all that goes on for 12 hours straight. Electric Avenue Music Festival is being held right in the heart of Christchurch’s Hagley Park on February 26th. 

Christchurch Climate

Weather and Temperature 

On one hand, summers are comfortable. On the other hand, winters are cold and windy. It is cloudy all year. Over the year, temperature varies from 37°F(3°C) to 71°F(22°C), and in some really rare cases, it goes below 30°F(-1°C) or above 81°F(21°C). 

What to Pack and Local Timing 

You will need tights or wind pants and long socks to protect your legs from the wind and to keep them warm. For the top, probably a coat will be enough. Also, some waterproofs will be good during the rainy season and of course, an umbrella is a must. Summers are not that hot, so you might just grab a few light clothing options in case of the hot days. Christchurch time zone is GMT+12 and you should keep that in mind to avoid any kinds of different time zone confusion in the future. 

Top Attractions You Must Visit in Christchurch 

Another reason to make you not think twice about booking student accommodation in Christchurch is its top-rated, most beautiful attractions you may ever see. Since we always recommend the best, we would like to recommend you the following: 

1. Christchurch Botanic Gardens 

Christchurch is called “The Garden City” and that is thanks to its beautiful botanic gardens. There is a beautiful rose garden in full bloom and a wonderful succulent /rainforest hall and some gorgeous cottage gardens and lots more. It is the best place to take a walk or have a picnic with some friends or just chill by yourself. 

2. Willowbank Wildlife Reserve 

This reserve has a wide variety of animals native as well as different species. You are guaranteed to see 50 different animal species. 

3. TranzAlpine Train 

You’re probably thinking “A train?!”, yes a train,  TranzAlpine rail journey is a must-do for those who want to soak up the South Island’s stunning alpine landscapes. You will enjoy extreme bridges and tunnels and superb views of the mountains, rivers, and gorges with a short stop at Arthur's Pass.

4. Canterbury Museum 

The museum holds the world’s largest collection of Antarctic artefacts, and it shows a remarkably diverse collection through a series of exchanges with other venues from across the globe as well as various international auctions.

5. International Antarctic Centre 

Another great museum is International Antarctic Centre. However, it is totally different from the last museum or even most of the museums of the world as it is an interactive museum that offers visitors some great insight into the world’s iciest continent. Lots of stuff are there to see and do, like the indoor Antarctic Storm simulation room, Hägglund vehicle rides, and the resident little blue penguins.

6. Christchurch Gondola 

Time in Christchurch Gondola passes fast as the things you can do there never end. With hiking trails, a cafe, a gift shop, and a cute little ride through NZ history, you can easily spend the whole day without realizing and actually, you will still need to go another day to explore more. 

How to Get Around Christchurch

The Christchurch bus network is the most extensive and the cheapest and most commonly used public transport network. So yeah take the bus! You can get to most places by bus. To save money and get away with the confusion of the usage of cash, the prepaid card, the Metrocard will be the two right things to choose from. The Metro bus service is another good way to get around the city without emptying your wallet. You can use the campus roads and pedestrian paths but be sure to follow the Christchurch cycling guidelines. Other transport options include a ferry service, taxis and a city tram.
