New student accommodation open to view in Tauranga

4 October 2021

The University of Waikato's new student accommodation in Tauranga is open for the community to view, this Saturday.

This weekend, the University of Waikato throws open the doors to Selwyn Street Studios, its brand new, University-managed student accommodation that opens in Tauranga in 2022.

The New Accommodation Open Day is on Saturday 9 October from 11am to 1pm at 38 Selwyn Street, off Cameron Road and across the road from the University's CBD campus. There is no need to register, just turn up and take a tour.

Staff will be on hand to answer questions about the 93-bed complex that offers self-catered living for students enrolled in any study level at the Tauranga campus next year. Staff can also help prospective students with their accommodation applications and give details about the Tauranga Campus Residential Scholarship that brings the 2022 cost per week down from $250 to just $150 for eligible applicants.

Attendees are required to adhere to Covid-19 Level 2 protocols during their visit – scanning or signing in, maintaining social distancing and wearing a mask while touring the indoor facilities.

All are welcome. For more information, phone 07 262 0500 Monday to Friday 8am-4.30pm, email [email protected] or visit the events page here.
