Huia Residence

Close to the trendy Newmarket and Parnell shopping precincts, and only a short walk away from the General Library on the City Campus, Huia is home to 321 residents each year.

About the hall

Huia offers the best of both worlds: students who enjoy an independent style of living can choose self-catered, or those who prefer a more traditional experience can opt for fully catered.

The accommodation management team provides personal support throughout your stay and arranges social and recreational activities during the year.

Our resident advisors live on-site, and reception is open 24/7 to ensure you have a duty person available at all times.
