Waitākiri Village

Waitākiri Village is a smaller fully-catered hall of residence offering single, double (single occupancy) and large ensuite rooms in a close-knit first-year student community.  The 72 room complex is set back from the road with expansive outdoor areas and social spaces for sports activities and events.  

The village is close to suburban shopping centres and cinemas giving you plenty of options outside of university.  For the outdoors enthusiast, surfing at New Brighton Beach or mountain biking at Bottle Lake Forest is approximately 6 km from the village.  Free parking is available on-site and Metro Cards are offered to cover attendance at lectures during term time.  The village is on a regular and direct bus route to the campus and around town.

The two live-in Residential Assistants are there to support you, and arrange on-site tutorials and events.  Student Services teams offer workshops on-site to advise and support you through your university study.

If you have a day full of commitments such as study groups or lectures, you have the flexibility to take a packed lunch in the morning, or have lunch or dinner at University Hall.

Flexible payments are on offer with the option of a fortnightly direct debit.
