UC is located in Ōtautahi | Christchurch in Aotearoa New Zealand's South Island. Christchurch is not only the second largest city in Aotearoa New Zealand but is also the most affordable major city. Christchurch is one of the world’s most modern and sustainable cities, through its strong partnership with Ngāi Tūāhuriri as mana whenua. Mana whenua refers to the mana (authority) held by the local hapū or iwi (tribe) over the land or particular area. The landscape now includes many cultural narratives of the region in its city streets, spaces, and buildings.
