The following information gives a brief explanation of the different sorts of accommodation available to international students and an indication of their costs. For more information you can also refer to www.newzealandeducated.com.
International students who are aged under 18 years, and who are not living with their parents, must stay either with a designated caregiver or in a homestay. Please contact the student administrator email@example.com for more details.
Homestay [not assessed by Ntec and CIB]
For students who would like to experience living with a local family, a homestay is a great way to improve your English and find out more about New Zealand. The cost is around NZ$220 per week, plus a one-time placement fee of around NZ$225. Students have their own bedroom, and are provided with breakfast and dinner during the week and with breakfast, lunch and dinner at weekends.
All homestay families have been inspected and approved by our Accommodation Agents.
Homestays are arranged by our Accommodation Agents, but for any homestay issues, or to arrange a homestay, please contact the Student Administrator or Student Counsellor.
Hostel [not assessed by Ntec and CIB]
For students who want more independence than a homestay, but are not willing to take on the responsibility of a flat, a hostel is a good option. You can either have a room of your own or share a room, and you will usually have access to cooking, cleaning and laundry facilities.
Flat or Apartment [not assessed by Ntec and CIB]
‘Going flatting’ means you rent a house or apartment either on your own or with others. Flatting gives you more freedom, but requires a lot of maturity.
For more information about renting go to the Department of Building and Housing (Tenancies) website:
Private Board [not assessed by Ntec and CIB]
You have your own room in the home of a local family. Board is paid to cover rent, expenses (phone and electricity) and sometimes food. You could expect to pay around NZ$190 - $210 per week as a boarder.
