Application deadlines

We encourage you to apply for accommodation as soon as applications open, even if you have not yet completed your application to study at the University of Auckland. This will help to ensure you are placed in your preferred accommodation option.

The accommodation office will still attempt to place students in University housing even after deadlines have passed, however a place cannot be guaranteed.
