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.
Homestay accommodation is when you live with a local family in the family’s home. You become a member of the family and your new family support you as you start your university journey.
Private accommodation can include renting an apartment, house or unit, or renting a room in a hostel or flat, with or without flatmates. It's important you understand your rights as a tenant when choosing this type of accommodation.
Why choose Massey student accommodation?
