Home stay is the best way not only to improve your English skills but also to experience real New Zealand lifestyle and culture.We take great care in choosing a hospitable, friendly family for our students’ home stay accommodation. Most of our host families live within 3 bus stages of the Institute. Each family hosts only one student. However, couples or those wishing to share a home stay with a student of a different nationality can be catered for. Also your home stay will provide breakfast and dinner on weekdays and 3 meals during the weekend.


If you prefer to live on your own, we also offer student residence located in the city center; the residences are fully equipped with shared kitchen, living room,bathroom, TV, coin-operated laundry and washing machine. They offer single room, double room, triple room and quadruple room. This is a good opportunity to meet new people from different countries and practice your English.

Please check the availability before choosing this option. Particularly single rooms and double rooms as they are very popular so you need advance booking.


You may want to share a place with your new friends or have a more independent atmosphere once you get use to the New Zealand lifestyle; renting a flat (apartment) may be the right option for you. Talk to our friendly staff and they can assist you choosing the right place that suites your needs.
