About the hall

Facility owned and operated by the University of Auckland

O'Rorke Hall is our third largest Hall of Residence, offering comfortably furnished single rooms in a 'pod' style formation on each floor.

O'Rorke is a short walk to the centre of the city campus and main arterial routes through the city, making access to public transport quick and convenient.

The Accommodation management team and Resident Advisers arrange social and recreational events along with academic mentoring and study support sessions throughout the year to help you make friends and settle into student life.

The Resident Manager and Resident Advisers live on site, ensuring there is a duty person available 24 hours a day.
