Halls of Residence Tours

The best time to come and view the halls of residence in person is during Open Day (date for 2022 is Friday 9 September, 9.00am-3.00pm).  The halls will also be open the afternoon before (1.00pm-4.00pm), and the morning after (9.00am-12.00pm), for tours on the hour.  Open Day tours do not need to be booked.

If unable to attend on Open Day, students and whanau are welcome to visit on a guided tour to view the campus and first year halls of residence.  These tours must be booked online.  Dates for bookable tours will be provided once confirmed for 2022.
