Accommodation options for students

Where you live is an important decision to make when you're a student. We make sure your accommodation is complementary to your studies and university experience.

Our campuses in Auckland, Palmerston North and Wellington have great accommodation options. You can live in a hall of residence, an apartment or a studio unit. We also provide homestay accommodation for international students.

Halls of residence and apartments

Living in a Massey hall of residence or apartment will give you a sense of belonging to your student community. It's a great way to establish your life at uni and meet new people from all over the world.
