For students studying at our Tauranga campus, you can stay in brand new, self-catered university accommodation in the heart of the city.


Homestay is where you stay with a New Zealand family and learn more about the local culture. This is a great option for international students who want to improve their coversational english.

Flatting and Private Rentals

If you don’t want to live on campus, there are plenty of flats and rental properties.. We recommend that if you choose to rent or flat that you move in early to get settled in before the trimester starts and always have your agreement in writing.
