Private accommodation assistance

Finding private accommodation in Auckland can be overwhelming if you are new to the city, or even the country.

If you’re planning to live off campus, there are plenty of options available to you and the University Accommodation Solutions team is here to help.

We offer a wide range of services and can provide advice on:

  • Types of private accommodation
  • Costs
  • How to use and interpret advertisements on websites like TradeMe
  • What to look for when visiting a property
  • How to apply
  • Contracts
  • Bonds (security deposits)
  • Tenancy disputes
  • Any and all of your questions

If you’re unsure where to start, or for assistance with any of the above, contact us at the Accommodation office and we can put you in touch with our dedicated external accommodation advisor.
