New Zealand Accomodation

There are several possible options for renting during a period of study in New Zealand. You could stay in student residence halls ($200 per week, on average), a shared flat ($120 per week) or a private flat ($180 per week).

The 2017 estimate for renting a room in a three-person apartment is $202 per week in Auckland, $127 in Hamilton, $170 in Wellington, $132 in Christchurch and $147 in Dunedin. Therefore, to live in Auckland (the most expensive of the university cities), students should budget to spend $8,080 on rent per year (based on a 40-week contract) which would amount to $24,240 across the entire three-year bachelor’s degree.
