Bishop Julius Hall — 100 years

From FRIDAY 24 until SUNDAY 26 NOVEMBER 2017

You are invited celebrate our Centenary and reconnect with your contemporaries from Bish days.

Bishop Julius has been home to thousands of students since it began as a small family of 15 students in 1917 to its present day capacity of 169 students.

Many enduring friendships were formed at Bishop Julius before Alumni dispersed through New Zealand and the world.

The centenary year will culminate in a weekend of events including a meet and greet, decade photos, tours of the Hall and University, a dinner and dance and combined service at the Transitional Cathedral. Accommodation will be available at the Hall.


The Alumni Association invite Alumni of the Hall to register their interest at the link below:

We are planning a display of photos and memorabilia for the Centenary Celebrations. Thanks to the generosity of the Alumni over the years we have built up excellent archival material, especially to the 1970’s, just before the Hall moved to Waimairi Road. Hence any photos from after 1974 are very welcome. As we work towards the Celebrations, we invite you to check your photographic collections to find material significant to your era.

We would be very grateful to receive them. Please forward them to the committee c/o Bishop Julius Hall, 90 Waimairi Road, Ilam, ensuring your return address is included. They will be copied and returned to you before November.
