Accommodation options include homestay with a New Zealand family or flatting at the Student Village right across the road from EIT’s Hawke’s Bay Campus.

The Student Village (SV) is a self-catering complex of 12 villas housing six students in each.  Both New Zealand and international students live together (mixed gender), and although each student has their own furnished bedroom, students share lounge, kitchen and bathroom facilities in each villa.  The SV is a multi-cultural communal environment better suited to more independent students.  It is a great environment to meet other students, study and relax together. 

The SV is located on campus and is next to the Sports Centre and bus stop.  There are regular office hours, but as the Managers live on site, there are 24-hour support arrangements for resident students. It includes:

  1. Single furnished bedroom
  2. Furnished kitchen and lounge
  3. Electricity
  4. Internet
