Entertaining and informing UC Students since 1930!


CANTA is the official magazine of the University of Canterbury Students’ Association (UCSA). We’ve been around entertaining and informing UC students since 1930!

CANTA is free. We print 13 issues per year, and distribute the magazine around the UC campus every second Monday during term time.

CANTA is aligned with the Fairfax Code of Conduct where applicable.


Josh Brosnahan is CANTA's full-time Editor.

The wider CANTA team includes a Deputy Editor, Designer, feature writers and regular contributors. CANTA always relishes fresh student-submitted content, so don't be scared to get in touch!
