Christchurch - Manawa campus

Dedicated to health education, Manawa is where Ara’s nursing, midwifery and medical imaging students are based. 

Christchurch Manawa campus

Ara shares this brand new building – located opposite Christchurch Hospital – in a collaborative, integrated environment with researchers from the University of Canterbury and health professionals from the Canterbury District Health Board.

Purpose-designed, it features several high-tech simulation rooms to provide students with real-world learning experiences. Manawa is on several bus routes and is just a short walk from shops, cafés, parks and other attractions in the CBD.
