About

What is CANTA?

CANTA is the official magazine of the University of Canterbury. We’ve been around entertaining and informing UC students since 1930!

Whether it be news, debates, investigations, binge-drinking, satire, columns, jokes, drug-taking, or crosswords. We’ve got it covered. We print 12 issues per year, and distribute the magazine around the UC campus every second Monday during term time.

Plus, it’s free!
