Victoria University of Wellington offers several different accommodation options. Refer to the information below to guide you in selecting your preferences. All options are self-catered and fully furnished.

Mid-way between the main campus (Kelburn) and downtown Wellington, Everton Hall apartments are within a short walking distance to each. With almost 200 students, Everton has a mostly Kiwi (New Zealander) population, so this is your best option if you’d like to live with local students! Residents enjoy a large common room with table tennis, pool table and basketball hoops, and social events are held regularly throughout the semester.

University Hall

University Hall provides self-catered accommodation for international and domestic students. The accommodation is made up of over 85 houses and flats in various locations around the Kelburn Campus and ranges from 4 bedroom flats to houses of up to 20 residents.

  • The Te Kotahinga option consists of fully furnished houses that are dotted around the outer edges of the Kelburn campus. Most houses have a Kiwi host, who will be able to provide you with valuable information about student life in Wellington and New Zealand life in general. Preference is given to international students and offers mostly single rooms with some twin-shared places.
  • At Wai-te-ata you will find 4-5 bedroom apartments located close to the Kelburn campus. Due to a lack of common areas, organized social activities for the community at Wai-te-ata are generally impromptu events and do not occur regularly. The student population of Wai-te-ata is primarily international students.
