We encourage you to register (including indicating which sessions you wish to attend) as soon as possible as this will help to coordinate all the resources and catering.


We envisage that some attendees will want to stay together as a group so we have made arrangements for this at The Commodore Hotel (449 Memorial Ave, Christchurch) for Saturday night (29 October).  The cost is $205 incl of GST per room, per night (for 1 or 2 people). Breakfast can be added on for $25 (to be confirmed prior to arrival). There is a free shuttle service to and from the airport for any staying guests. Full details can be found at

All those who wish to stay at the Commodore Airport Hotel need to make their own booking and advise that they are part of the 'Lincoln University Lincoln Reunion Dinner for Class of ‘86'. There are only 15 rooms reserved so we encourage you to do this ASAP.

Accommodation on Friday night shouldn't be an issue at the Commodore Airport Hotel for those that get on and book early. Alternatively, there is accommodation available in the Halls of Residence at Lincoln University for $82 per person. Please contact the Alumni and Development Office for more information.

If you have any photos from your time at Lincoln that you would like to share for a photo board at the reunion, please email The Alumni and Development Office will also happily scan them and then send them safely back to you.

We still have the following list of classmates with missing contact details, if you are able to help with locating any of these people please let the Alumni and Development Office know. 

If you would like any further information or assistance with registering, please contact Penny Curran on Email: or phone the Alumni and Development Office on +64 3 423 0000.
