While some students do source their own accommodation, a far more popular option is to share own of the houses we provide. This lets you make friends and settle down faster, while also being very cost-effective. The accommodation is your own single room with common laundry, shower and kitchen facilities and costs NZ $200 per week.
You will need to organise your own daily transport, and many students buy a car whilst studying. Good quality used vehicles are relatively cheap in New Zealand
