A great place to

study, a great

place to live

Living in Christchurch

Christchurch is the educational, horticultural, commercial and

tourism hub for New Zealand’s South Island. With the Pacific

Ocean to the east and the Southern Alps to the west, our

environment is one of extraordinary natural beauty.

Christchurch has excellent buses (visit www.metroinfo.org.nz)

and is easy to walk and bike around. If you have a valid New

Zealand drivers licence you can also travel to CPIT by car and we

have plentiful low cost parking close to campus.

“I studied English and I liked

this place, so I thought why not

get my degree here? It’s a small

city and the people are friendly.”

Hakeem Aldarawsh - Saudi Arabia

Accommodation

Christchurch has many accommodation possibilities

for you to consider. When you first arrive we believe

the best option is to board with a homestay family

and experience the warm hospitality and family

environments our people are renowned for. We

carefully select and supervise homestay providers.

You will have your own fully furnished room and share

evening meals with the host family. This gives you a

chance to practise your English and quickly understand

‘kiwi’ culture.

Our Homestay services include:

• Interviews with host families and full home inspection

• Police vetting of all host families

• Airport pick-up

• A ‘welcome pack’ upon arrival

• Banking assistance on your first day at CPIT

• Translators to assist communication

• Follow up meetings with you and your homestay

family to ensure everyone is happy and comfortable.

You may choose to stay on with your host family for the

duration of your studies or once you are confident with

your timetable, you can consider other accommodation

options like moving into a furnished hostel or setting

up an apartment or house with friends.

Sports

You will find outstanding recreation and sporting

opportunities here from gyms and martial arts

training to casual or organised clubs playing

soccer, rugby, tennis and basketball. Our region is

also renowned for independent adventure sports

like surfing, kitesurfing, skiing, snowboarding and

kayaking. Golfing is enjoyed all year round with low

cost green fees and more than 30 stunning courses

to explore in Canterbury.

Recreation

Several arts, music and cultural festivals are held

each year throughout our region and international

artists regularly feature at the CBS arena. Hagley

Park is spectacular all year round and is the main

venue for outdoor concerts, expos and events.

Dance and live theatre is very popular in our city

with stage shows to entertain and numerous

studios teaching steps as varied as Ballroom and Salsa

to Hip Hop.

Specialist food and craft markets are held every

weekend and diverse ethnicities are well represented

in the city’s restaurants and shopping districts.

Kia ora

Welcome to

New Zealand

It is my pleasure as Chief Executive to

welcome international students and visitors

to the CPIT community.

For the past century CPIT has been

the heart of applied, vocational learning

in Christchurch.

We’re one of the South Island’s largest

tertiary institutes attracting innovative and

exciting learners from our own shores and

across the globe.

Our city of Christchurch is New Zealand’s

third largest with a thriving arts and culture

scene. Extraordinary outdoor adventure

opportunities are also plentiful with the

Pacific Ocean on your doorstep and just a

short journey to the Southern Alps.

We look forward to you becoming part of

our friendly and vibrant community.

Kay Giles

CPIT Chief Executive
