There is a variety of accommodation options available for overseas students in New Zealand. There are four main types of accommodation options that students can choose from:
Homestays let students stay with a New Zealand family in a fully functional and a fully furnished home. These are a very good option for socially active students. However, the viability of this option would depend upon how well you get along with the family you are living with.
2. Individual apartments for rent:
Sometimes the campus student support team can also guide you regarding this but nevertheless, there are a myriad of online portals offering various accommodation options keeping you totally secure.
3. Shared apartments for rent:
Shared apartments allow students to share the apartment with two or more roommates. One of the major advantages to share an apartment is that it’s economic as the rent and utility bills get shared in such cases. It also serves as a great opportunity to get to know other people and make new friends.
There are a few points to keep in mind such as distance from campus and central locations, so it’s always recommended to get in touch with the campus for assistance.
