Semester Two 2020 Accommodation Scholarships

We have 300 new scholarships and new or transferring students may be eligible for free accommodation.

The University of Auckland has new scholarships available for Semester Two 2020 to financially support new or transferring undergraduate, postgraduate and new Tertiary Foundation Certificate (TFC) students by providing accommodation.

“Mā ngā parirau te manu ka rere” – “it is the wings that allow the bird to fly”.
Parirau is Māori for wing, and so to protect under one’s wing

We have a range of accommodation to suit students in all stages of their academic careers, and know that students living in a community of peers, in quality accommodation, with strong support services and easy access to campus, makes academic success more likely.

The Parirau Scholarship covers the cost of a full semester in accommodation. The value of these scholarships range from $6,000 to $7,500 which includes:

  • Power
  • Water
  • Access to university Wi-Fi
  • Access to university recreation facilities
  • And for those in a catered residence, all of your meals.

Living in university accommodation also means you are only a short walk to your lectures giving you more time to focus on your studies, and less time commuting.

Applications for the University of Auckland Parirau Accommodation Scholarships are open now.
