International students under 18 years of age
All students who will be under 18 years of age when they start their study should apply for Homestay accommodation through Student Links.
Living in a homestay means you live with a New Zealand family in their home and are treated as one of the family. Homestays are available throughout Christchurch in a variety of homes, offering a wide range of living situations.
Homestay provides you with 3 meals per day, a fully-furnished room, bathroom and laundry facilities, and power and telephone rental (toll calls and some internet charges are extra depending on usage).
