Puppy Love

What Sign up for our campus-wide global treasure hunt! Just like L&P is world famous in NZ, UC is a microcosm of the world in little ol' Ōtautahi. Explore the backroads and bright lights of Ilam campus, solving puzzles and having some laughs. Bring a group of friends, or if you want to meet some new people, sign up by yourself and make some new friends while you go. A diverse global team will be useful, but don't skimp on the locals either!
