Victoria University of Wellington offers several different housing options. Refer to the information below to guide you in selecting your preferences. All options are self-catered and fully furnished. Except in very rare circumstances, we are not able to accommodate any roommate requests in New Zealand.
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.
Te Kotahinga 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.
