It  can now offer more accommodation options than ever before. Its  top priority is to make sure you have somewhere welcoming, comfortable and safe to live. They offer a wide range of options to suit various living styles and needs, from University-managed Halls of Residence to self-catered flats and apartments. They  also offer guidance and assistance in finding private accommodation in Auckland. It’s not always possible to secure your first choice of residence but they  aim to help you find something that meets your requirements. The  Accommodation Solutions team is there to assist with any questions or concerns you may have.

Halls of Residence:  For those who have just completed their last year of high school, the  first-year Halls of Residence offer you a vibrant, supportive community full of opportunities to gain new experiences. This is the ideal way to help you adjust to the challenges and opportunities of student life in your first year.

The University flats and apartments offer students comfortably furnished residences in an independent environment

Private accommodation   :  If you haven’t been successful in gaining a place in a University residence, or if the University residences aren’t for you, there are other suitable options you can consider.

 Before you arrive in Auckland, we encourage you to read  e-book, A Student’s Guide to Living in Auckland, which is full of helpful information about locations, rental agreements, and the cost of living. This guide is available on the website. We suggest you book temporary accommodation for your first few weeks in Auckland to give you time to familiarise yourself with the city, its surrounding suburbs, and where you want to live.

Homestays – In a homestay you live with a family, have your own room, and meals and other services are provided. Please note that homestays are generally not close to the campus

Flatting or “Flat Sharing” Flatting or flat sharing involves sharing a house or apartment with other students. Throughout the year, there are many listings on websites such as TradeMe, StudentRent and NZ Flatmates for people looking for flatmates, both in apartments in central Auckland and in houses in the outer suburbs.
