Waimairi Village (all students, self-catered)

Waimairi Village is a community of houses located on campus. The village offers a safe and comfortable environment that is within equal walking distance of both the Dovedale Campus and the main Ilam Campus.

It houses up to 75 students in 15 four-bedroom houses and builds a strong sense of community through organised social activities and academic support.  Each house can accommodate one couple.  Couples apply for the term "2019 Couples/Family Accommodation" or "2020 Couples/Family Accommodation" (open 1 August) and indicate a preference for a room type in the online application form.

All the houses are fully-furnished and self-catered but you can opt to have meals at nearby University Hall. Car parking is also available for up to 25 cars.  View our 360° panoramas.
