Students will be housed in apartment-style accommodations while at the University of Auckland. Because most full-time students live at home or in independent accommodation, students will live primarily with other international and study abroad students, though Auckland does try to place students with a Kiwi (local student) host where possible.

Auckland is a very navigable city. Study abroad students are expected to commute between their housing, the university, and other parts of the city as do their local peers: by foot, or by making use of the city’s bus network.

Student Apartments

Carlaw Park Student Village is Auckland University’s newest accommodation, having opened in February of 2014. Located next to the park around the Auckland Museum, it is a 5-minute walk from campus and a short walk to downtown Auckland. Students studying at Auckland with Arcadia who are housed in Carlaw will have their own bedroom and share a living room, kitchen and bathroom with other students in a 3 - 4 bedroom apartment. Each apartment is fully furnished and includes a fully equipped kitchen. Broadband internet access is available in the rooms and included in the housing cost.

Parnell Student Village consists of a series of apartments with, primarily, four or five bedrooms each. Each apartment is fully furnished and includes an equipped kitchen. Bedrooms are single occupancy; students share apartment common areas including living room, kitchen and bath, with other students. Broadband internet access is available in the rooms and included in the housing cost. The flats are a 20-minute walk from campus and downtown Auckland, and there is a bus service that offers cheaper student fares for use at night or during inclement weather. The apartments are a close walk to the neighborhood of Parnell and one of the largest parks in Auckland.

Students studying at Auckland with Arcadia who are housed in Unilodge will have their own bedroom and share a living room, kitchen and bath with other students (studio apartments are not available). Each apartment is fully furnished and includes an equipped kitchen. Broadband internet access is available in the rooms and included in the housing cost.
