Accommodation

Living in the halls of residence is a great way to make new friends and be integrated into kiwi culture. There are three fully-catered halls to choose from and each is located on campus meaning it’s a short walk to class. You won’t need to worry about grocery shopping or cooking leaving more time for study, seeing friends, and exploring.  If you would like to live with a kiwi family, Homestay is the option for you.
