Accommodation

NSIA does not have any on-campus accommodation but we can arrange a home stay for newly arrived students in New Zealand. The following links may help with your accommodation needs:



Homestay

Homestay arrangements are available to all international students. All homestay families in the NSIA homestay programme are carefully selected and police vetted by our homestay provider.

Students wishing to live with a homestay family must request this service through the NSIA International Recruitment Team. NSIA will pass the student’s details and requirements to our homestay provider who will endeavour to find a homestay family that meets the student’s requirements as stated in the application form within 10 working days.
