Get involved and meet lots of people at the many inter-hall events. Throughout the year there are sports events, a quiz night, talent quest, film festival screening, and hall formals as well as in-hall activities.


Our dedicated team of hall staff are always there to support you, and contribute to creating a friendly and safe hall whānau culture.

Residential advisers (RAs) are senior students employed and trained by the University to support hall residents. You’ll be assigned to one of them and they are often your first point of contact if you need help. RAs are very approachable and enjoy having a chat anytime. They organise hall events and can arrange study groups.

Student support coordinators are registered health professionals who are assigned to each hall, giving you easy access to counselling support. They also work closely with hall staff to ensure health and wellbeing goals are understood and being met.

Support services

We want you to have a happy and successful time at university and get all the support you may need. Make use of our study skills advice and resources as well as health, counselling, and recreation services. There are mentoring programmes and support networks available within our diverse communities.

Addressing conflict

Living with others can be hard at times. Our halls use a restorative justice process to address conflict and rule breaking. This process requires everyone affected to work together to reach an agreement about what must be done to restore relationships.
