A proud tradition of enjoying the good things in life

In the late 1970’s The Shilling Club was formed at the University of Canterbury that sought to change the course of history. The goals of this organisation were clearly spelt out, and included “…the encouragement of all the enjoyable activities of life in their entirety, including to eat and drink more…”

Noble goals as they were, The Shilling Club then welcomed a diverse section of the student community. Members had to share only the love of a beer (or two) and eventually went on to a variety of careers (including second-hand car dealing, banking and even a suspected engineer).

Celebrating the traditions and ideals that represent the best that the University of Canterbury has to offer, The Shilling Club again opens its ranks to everyone who wishes to continue the goal of bringing people together and enjoying life to the full.

The Shilling Club is proud to partner with another organisation who encourage the enjoyment of the good things in life - Lion.
