Housing and flatting
Choosing a place to live is one of the most important decisions you’ll make when you start studying in New Zealand. Here’s what you need to know about the different housing options available for international students.
Finding a flat in New Zealand
If you want to learn about being independent, renting a place ('flatting') on your own or with others ('flatmates') is a sure way to learn! Get tips on how to find a flat and what to look for when finding a flat to rent.
Know your flatting rights
Renting a flat or a room in a flat while you're studying in New Zealand can be a great experience, if you know your rights and responsibilities. When renting a property, you need to have a good understanding of tenants’ rights (or renters' rights). Find out what to do if there is a problem when renting in New Zealand.
A Home Away from Home
I would recommend any international student, especially one who’s never been too far from home to stay with a homestay family in the initial periods of their stay.
