University Flats / Apartments are available as housing options for students studying at the University of Otago for one semester. Dunedin has a wide range of rental housing from historic houses to multi-unit, purpose-built complexes. The University of Otago manages many flats as a primary housing option for international and study abroad students, and strives to place one host student within each flat to give students valuable information about student life in Dunedin and New Zealand life in general. The flats are located close to campus and shopping and contain a furnished kitchen, common room, and single bedrooms. All options are fully furnished and meal plans are not available. All students are responsible for sourcing their own meals. Except in very rare circumstances, we are not able to accommodate any roommate requests in New Zealand.
There are additional housing options available only to students arriving in February who are staying for 2 semesters. If you are interested in these options, contact your Program Manager for more information about the application process. Placement is not guaranteed.
