The capital city of New Zealand, Wellington sits near the North Island’s southernmost point on the Cook Strait. It is a compact city encompassing a waterfront promenade, sandy beaches, a working harbour, and colourful timber houses on surrounding hills. Due to the presence of many acclaimed universities, it attracts a large volume of domestic and international students every year, making it difficult to find quality student accommodation in Wellington.
Universities in Wellington have struggled to accommodate all enrolled students in the student hall, thereby creating a large demand for private student accommodation with campus-like facilities. These off-campus alternatives are located within walking distance of the city’s top universities to help residents cut down on both time and money on their daily commute.
Those looking for a private student room in the city should visit student accommodation websites to compare the wide variety of options available and make an informed decision about the best student housing. Students can choose from a wide variety of room types based on their budget and other preferences – student apartment, student flat, shared and en-suite room, as well as a student studio. All of these properties are fully-functional and offer state-of-the-art amenities like a common lounge area, pool table, study room, card-operated laundry, fully-equipped gym, television, barbecue area, and more. These are pre-verified by the University Living team and their channel partners to ensure compliance with our superior quality standards. These are bills-inclusive and feature the latest security measures because every student deserves a happy student home.
The city is characterised by small dining establishments, and its café culture is internationally recognised due to the presence of a large number of coffee houses. It is also jam-packed with adventurous activities such as bungee jumping, abseiling, caving and canyoning, zorbing, and more. Wellington is the perfect playground for sports enthusiasts and adrenaline junkies of all kinds. It features a temperate maritime climate and is known as the world's windiest city.
