What is CANTA?

CANTA is the official magazine and the iconic platform for students to voice their opinion at 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 13 issues per year, and distribute the magazine around the UC campus every second Monday during term time.

and it’s free!
