We strongly recommend our students to apply for homestay accommodation for at least one month. Homestay provides a warm family environment and gives students the opportunity to assimilate into the New Zealand way of life by becoming part of a New Zealand family. The homestay details are forwarded to a student by their education provider. Also students can live in in rental accommodations while studying. The same can be checked through real estate agents. Normally these are the costs available for the student accommodation. The usual cost is as follows: 1. Hall of residence Average cost: Around NZ$200 - $300 per week. 2. Homestay/Private Board : Around NZ$180 per week. 3. Flatting/Independent Accommodation Average Cost: $70- $150 rent per week, plus expenses (food, electricity, phone, water etc).
