On Campus Halls of Residence

Mission Statement

The University of Waikato Halls' mission is to provide Residents with an experience of communal living, which is conducive to social maturation and academic success

Accommodation on campus offers you a great place to live, study and begin life-long friendships. Waikato's Halls of Residence offer a safe, friendly atmosphere making them your home away from home. The Halls are within short walking distance to all the University's facilities: lecture theatres, cafes, recreational centre, swimming pool, the Library, shops, banks and much more.

The Halls aim to meet the needs of those students with specific requirements. If there are enough applicants, the catered Halls may have an alcohol-free area, single sex area, Kaupapa Māori unit and/or an International students' area.

The University owns and operates four Halls of Residence known as College Hall, Student Village, Bryant Hall and Orchard Park. In the Halls, you will be part of a community of students from both New Zealand and throughout the world.

Each Hall has a Residential Manager and a team of residential staff living on site, as well as housekeeping and office staff.

Summer School Accommodation

The University offers limited self-catered accommodation during Summer School (T & S Semesters). Please contact the Accommodation Office on 07 838 4084 or email for further information and to request an application form.

Off Campus Accommodation

A large number of students live in privately owned flats and houses. Most of these are within easy walking or cycling distance of the University. The Accommodation Adviser has up-to-date lists of off campus accommodation offered by private owners and Real Estate agents of flats and houses in the area.
