At the University of Auckland, three residence halls are available: Grafton Hall, International House, and O’Rorke Hall. These halls provide three meals a day, seven days a week; sporting facilities (cricket, rugby, netball, etc.); single or double bedrooms; and the opportunity to take part in campus life, social events, and sports tournaments. The residence halls, particularly Grafton Hall, are the best housing choice for study in Auckland. There are also several university-managed facilities near the campus.
Some students choose to rent or share a private flat off campus. Since you arrive prior to the Auckland semester start date, you are in a good position to locate a private rental.
You have the flexibliy to choose the type of semester housing you want, however you will need to be proactive in your housing search. Semester housing is not reserved by UCEAP and is not inlcuded in the UCEAP program fees.
