Information about accommodation for Radiation Therapy students in Wellington

Living in Wellington

Wellington City accommodation Wellington, the “coolest little capital in the world” is a great place to study. It is small enough to walk almost everywhere but it also has excellent public transport so everything is super-accessible. And there’s so much going on, no matter what you’re into. From Homegrown to night markets to cool cafes to diving boards off the amazing waterfront. Not to mention Te Papa, Zealandia, Wellywood, Cuba St…

And for a weekend away, there are so many opportunities to venture out and explore the surf, snow and the great outdoors.
