International Students

Massey halls welcome international students from a variety of countries every year. Living in a Hall with fellow students from New Zealand is a great way for international students to meet the locals, get to know the culture and make life-long friends.

University accommodation in New Zealand might be quite different to what you're used to in your home country. The majority of students living in our halls are young students, so the environment can be quite social and may not suit students studying at postgraduate level. Please consider whether this environment is right for you. International students under the age of 18 years old cannot stay in halls of residence and instead must stay in a Homestay.

Applying for a place in the Wellington Halls of Residence

To apply for a place in the Halls, you must follow the steps below.

Apply for the Hall Confirm Enrolment Receive an Agreement Read and Accept Agreement

Pay Fees Book Check-in

When you submit an online application you will be asked to tell us about yourself and your lifestyle - this helps us to match you with suitable room/flatmates.

Once we receive your application, we will check that your enrolment in your programme at Massey is confirmed before we send you a residential agreement. Please note that the halls have limited beds and the sooner you apply, the more likely you are to get an offer.

To accept your agreement you need to accept it through our online portal. You will then need to arrange payment of all your fees by the due date before you can book your check-in.

Before you apply, get to know our halls a bit better so you can choose the experience that suits you the most.
