The Foundry


Watering UC students since ages ago...

The Foundry bar is pretty much the centre of student social life at UC, and since moving into Haere-roa, it's open longer hours and serves up great coffee. Stop by from 8.30am for a drink and a meal.

Watch the Rugby World Cup with us

At The Foundry, we're playing every RWC game LIVE on big screen. Stop by for a drink, some banter and all the sport action you crave. We'll also have our sweet Heineken bucket deal going, plus a few giveaways.

Outside of our usual hours, we'll be open 30 minutes before the first match of the day.
