Our flats

International students wishing to live in a flat with New Zealanders can apply for a pre-booked University managed flat. This option is popular for students who are only here for 6 months.

The University managed, furnished flats are very close to campus and of a good standard. A mattress is supplied and a bedding pack is included for undergraduate shared standard accommodation students - for other students (postgraduate and families) bedding and linen can be purchased locally in Dunedin or a bedding pack can be rented from the University Flats. (See more details in FAQs).

New Zealand host students are selected for a number of the University Flats. In addition, some of these students also take on the role of a Residential Assistant (RA) Person performing pastoral care and full support roles in their assigned area. These students will introduce you to the unique Dunedin student flatting culture.

There are a limited number of University Flats available for couples and small families. If we are unable to offer you a University Flat you should contact the Student Accommodation Centre who can provide you with lists of available flats as well as assistance to help you find privately owned accommodation that suits your needs.
