Story: Tertiary education

University buildings: Ivey Hall, Lincoln University (5th of 7)

Lincoln University began as the School of Agriculture at Canterbury College (later the University of Canterbury) in 1878. This is Ivey Hall, which was completed in 1880. In the 1970s and 1980s the building housed administration services, and from 1988 it held the university library. This photograph shows an event taking place outside Ivey Hall in the early 20th century.
