University apartments and flats

Explore your flatting and housing options—including those offered by the University—and learn about temporary accommodation for before you move into a hall.

In addition to traditional first-year halls of residence, the University offers accommodation for students in their second year or above in shared flats and apartments or single studios.

Living in a University flat is similar to living in a private flat in that you live independently and do your own cooking and cleaning, but you’ll have the benefit of a fully furnished room and many of the support services that are part of living in a University hall.

Our self-catered accommodation is available in Everton Hall, Education House, and at Kelburn Flats—Whare Hīnau.
