Summer School Accommodation

Cumberland College

Cumberland College, one of the University residential colleges, will be available for accommodation during Summer School 2020 and will provide an individual, warm, fully-furnished bedroom.  All meals are provided in the College's dining room; breakfast, lunch, dinner and supper on a daily basis.

Cumberland College is a warm, inviting student residence, just a four-minute walk from campus.

Residents have access to a computer room, study room and common rooms, including the formal Green Room which opens onto a courtyard and BBQ area. TV rooms are equipped with SKY TV and free Wi-Fi is available throughout the building. Large grounds and a fully-lit sports court offers plenty of outdoor space for sports and relaxing.

Bedrooms are fully-furnished, with shared unisex bathrooms. Swipe card access to the college 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 4 January until Friday 14 February 2020. As the college opens for the 2020 intake on Saturday 15 February, Summer School students will need to find accommodation elsewhere over the exam period, for which support and advice will be given.

The daily Summer School rate is NZ$58 and includes accommodation, all meals, student support and any events or excursions on offer.

Bookings for summer accommodation can be made through the Cumberland College website.

The booking portal will open in early August. Please feel free to contact the college for additional information.
