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.
