7. Accommodation

There are several accommodation options for students who are looking to stay in the area while studying with us.

HOMESTAY
Finding the right accommodation is very important for the success of your studies. Homestay accommodation can be arranged with Mahurangi Campus (MIT) registered homestay providers. It is the recommended first accommodation option for all international students.
Homestay is the best way to experience total immersion English and to learn about New Zealand life and culture. All homestay providers are carefully selected for their warm, welcoming attitudes and comfortable homes. If you are choosing this option be aware that it might be very different from living with your own family. You may be expected to help with some of the household duties. There will also be house rules to follow. We will match a family as close as possible to what you require and what the family is looking for.
You can expect to:
-Have your own furnished room
-Improve your English and enrich your cultural experiences
-To pay between $200.00 and $300.00 per week
-Meals provided
-Be included in family outings and excursions

Each homestay provider offers a different experience for students, so it is important that we have at least four weeks notice so we can find the homestay that is right for you.
For further information on this option please contact: Ray Burt Student Liaison Officer on + 64 09 425 8493.
