Everton Hall offers dorm-style accommodations that are within a short walking distance to the main campus (Kelburn) and downtown Wellington. 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, a pool table, and video game consoles. The team at Everton organize social events that are held regularly throughout the semester. Everton has multiple study spaces and is a great option for students that are academically focused. Placement at Everton Hall is first come, first served, so please be sure to submit your housing form early, as Everton is in high demand.
University Hall/Te Kotahinga consists of fully furnished houses that are dotted around the outer edges of the Kelburn campus. Most houses have a Kiwi Residence Assistant, who will be able to provide you with valuable information about student life in Wellington and New Zealand life in general. There is a large international student population, which provides many opportunities to meet people from all around the world. The University Hall staff run events throughout the semester such as sporting events, crafts, and other social events.
