Massey has a long, proud tradition of teaching
and research excellence. Its heritage,
geographic spread over three major cities,
range of qualifications and the flexibility of its
distance teaching all mean it offers students
from around the world the ability to tailor their
study to meet their needs and at the same time
connect closely with industry, professional
organisations and local communities.
Typically, we have more than 5000
international students each year from 100

own country in order to achieve academic
qualifications is a life-changing decision. I

stimulating student community.
Whatever you choose to study, and wherever
you chose to do it, we understand success
comes from a thousand little moments and
here at Massey we are committed to helping
you every step of the way.

and living costs
Massey Halls are our accommodation facilities, and we aim to give you
the best student experience and support during your university years.
Our Halls have dedicated staff to help navigate your priorities, connect
you with other residents and encourage you to join the many events and
activities that are available.
Location We are situated either on campus or within a short
walking distance of the University. Everything you need
is nearby, such as shops, bars and restaurants.

Support We have a team of staff to support you 24/7 and our
Residential Assistants live on campus.

Friendships We focus on building our community from the start.
You will live within a community of Massey University
students, and will have lots of opportunities to meet
people and make life-long friends from around the world.

Better grades
Research shows that students living in university-provided
accommodation tend to achieve better results.
Leadership We like to give our residents opportunities to take on
leadership roles, such as becoming a floor warden,
hall representative and – once you have been with us
a year – you can apply to join our team and become
a Residential Assistant.
Activities and events
We offer a full, varied residential life programme, so there is
no excuse not to get involved. We run welcome programmes
to help you settle into to life at Massey University.
We like to think we are your home away from home, where
you feel like you are among friends and family.
Safe and secure
Our buildings are safe and secure, with key fob security
access to buildings. We have a security team that does
regular checks through the day and night.
Homestay This option gives you the opportunity to live with a local
family in their home, and experience New Zealand culture.
This is a great way to improve your English language. You
will be provided with three meals a day and have support
from our homestay pastoral care team.

As well as tuition fees, you will need to pay for textbooks, non-tuition
fees and your personal expenses.
At the airport, on arrival in New Zealand, you are required to pay
a $35 International Visitor and Tourism Conservation Levy.
If you enter New Zealand on a student visa, Immigration NZ requires
you to have NZ$20,000 available in addition to your course fees for each
year you’ll be studying in New Zealand, plus $1500 for return airfare.
Living costs can vary considerably depending upon accommodation
option, location and personal spending habits, so you may require more
money than this.


• Costs are approximate based on 2023 fees and are in New Zealand dollars (NZD)
• Auckland is the largest of the three cities, so you can expect the cost of living to be higher
• Catered Halls provides a two meal a day meal plan (lunch and dinner Monday – Friday
and brunch and dinner Saturday – Sunday). Some accommodation options may also have
additional costs for items such as laundry and car parking, depending on location.
• Private accommodation options can be found on
