Guaranteed offer

Find out if you’re eligible for a guaranteed offer of a place in one of our halls.


Students with NCEA Level 2 endorsed with Excellence (or equivalent) are guaranteed an offer of a place in one of our halls.

Students who are awarded one of our school leaver scholarships are also guaranteed an offer of accommodation.

Students who have been on a gap year will be guaranteed a place if they achieved NCEA Level 3 with Excellence endorsements.

Some international students may also be eligible for a guaranteed offer.

Students are guaranteed an offer as long as they apply by the application deadline.


Where possible, students will be placed according to their choices. However, no student is guaranteed an offer of a place in their first-choice hall unless they have health or disability needs requiring specific facilities and support.

In some circumstances, students may be offered a place in a hall they have not chosen.
