We want to make sure all our students are safe, happy and cared for while studying in New Zealand. Through our main company ACG Education we have accommodation options available for students studying for 8 weeks or more. Any accommodation arrangement is between the prospective student and ACG Education. Students must secure accommodation prior to arriving in New Zealand, as this is a visa requirement.

International students can choose between:

  • Living with their parents if they live in New Zealand
  • Living with a parent’s choice of caregiver
  • Living with an ACG homestay
  • Renting a student apartment
  • Living in independent accommodation

If a student is under 18, they must choose one of the first three options.


ACG Homestays

Homestay accommodation means living in a private household with a New Zealand family. ACG, recommend that all students choose to live in a homestay for at least their first three months in New Zealand.

The benefits of a homestay

  • Safety – the homestay family can help students get around and give advice on living in New Zealand
  • It’s the best way to practice English – talking to your homestay family enhances your vocabulary and helps clarity of speech – an important part of living and studying in an English-speaking country
  • Routine – you will have regular meals and a daily routine – study requires energy and focus, so it’s important that you eat a regular and balanced diet of nutritious home-cooked food

High homestay standards

ACG has a team of accommodation officers and homestay assessors to make sure homestays are safe and suitable for students. Their friendly assessors inspect each home and interview families before students are placed, and visit students under the age of 18 at least three times a year to make sure their experience is positive.

Halls of Residence and Student Hostels

Halls of residence and student hostels are located near campus with single or share rooms. Bed linen and cleaning are provided. Meals are eaten in the communal dining hall. The cost is up to $230 per week. The cost for a furnished room, with shared kitchen and lounge facilities, is about $130 per week share or $230 per week single. Plus application fees.
