Summer School accommodation

Hayward College

Hayward College is the University of Otago’s summer residential college. This relaxing student residence is just a three-minute walk from campus.

Members have access to a computer room, study spaces, music room, exercise room and common areas, including a large TV room. Free Wi-Fi is available throughout the building.

Bedrooms are spacious and fully furnished, with shared unisex bathrooms. Each floor has a kitchenette. Swipe card access to the college after hours ensures a safe and secure environment.

Nutritious, healthy and tasty food is served in the college dining room by a talented team of professional chefs. Vegetarian and halal food is available, and most dietary requirements can be catered for by prior arrangement.

Staff are on hand to provide support throughout the Summer School period, along with opportunities for events and excursions.

Summer School accommodation will be available from Saturday 9 January until the morning of Friday 19 February. As the college opens for the 2021 intake on Saturday 20 February, Summer School students will need to be accommodated elsewhere over the exam period, for which support and advice will be given.

The daily Summer School rate is $65 (subject to confirmation) and includes accommodation, all meals, student support and any events or excursions on offer.

NB: Students coming to Dunedin just for the Summer School period are strongly discouraged from entering into short-term leases of flats, or relying on tourist accommodation which is in hot demand at this time of the year.

Bookings for summer accommodation can be made through the Hayward College website. Please feel free to contact the college for additional information.
