    Accommodation Options

    A range of accommodation options are available to students studying in New Zealand. Below are some examples and costs of living in New Zealand. The information below is by way of advice only. All can be found within walking distance of the campus however due to availability, public or private transport may be required.


    Cost of Living

    Living in New Zealand does not cost as much as many other countries. Moderate hotels cost between $120 - $140 a night (NZ dollars). Homestay accommodation costs approximately $200 per week. Student accommodation varies in cost from $150 per week for a room in a hostel or backpackers, to $250 in a higher standard hostel.
    Eating out in New Zealand will be an enjoyable experience with a large range of restaurants which will cater to every taste. Both Auckland and Wellington have hundreds of cafes and restaurants. Eating out is generally inexpensive, with cafe style meals from $12 through to restaurant mains at around $30.

    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.



    Homestay is a room of your own in a suburban house, usually with a garden and lawns. Interacting with your host family and friends is an excellent way to improve your English! Your host family provides meals, but home stay is not like living in a hotel. Some “give and take” is expected, as you become part of the family. The cost is up to $300 per week. There is up to a $160 one off fee payable to the home stay company who visit every home and interview every family. Many families have hosted students for many years. They will match you with a family close to your needs for example, smoking, non smoking, no children etc.



    You can find flats (apartments) by looking in the newspaper, on local notice boards (such as the supermarket) or going through a rental agent. You will probably have to pay a bond and some rent in advance when you first move in. Cost can be between $150 and $200 for a room then you must pay for food, electricity, water etc.


    Airport Pick - up / Meet and Greet

    If you take Homestay accommodation you will be met at the international airport and taken to and introduced to your home stay family for free. This service is also available to those that have arranged their own accommodation but who would like to be met on arrival in New Zealand for a fee.

    Students must secure accommodation prior to arriving in New Zealand, as this will be a requirement of their visa.
