10 Reasons to Live on Campus
This will probably be your first time living away from home. You'll have to manage your time, your money and your priorities carefully and you'll learn more about yourself than you ever thought there was to know. But because most of the residents in the halls are first-year students you're all in the same boat. The residential staff in the halls are students too, so they know the sort of issues you're likely to encounter and how to figure them out.
Accommodation on campus offers you a great place to live, study and make new friends. Waikato has four Halls of Residence which offer a friendly, safe atmosphere and a home away from home.
