During your study in New Zealand you can choose between a numbers of accommodation options. The table below gives a brief explanation of the different sorts of accommodation available to international students.

You live with a family in their home. Homestays are great for helping with your English because you will need to speak English at home. Mealtimes will be shared together. You will be treated like one of the family and expected to help out with household chores and to oblige to the rules set by your host parents such as curfews.

Private Boarding
You have your own room in a private residential home or boarding house. Meals are provided, and probably shared. You are free to come and go as you please. You may or may not be expected to help with household chores. You will usually be expected to care for your own room

You rent a house or apartment (Any building where people live together, who are not a family or couple, is called a flat) either on your own or with others. Flats are usually unfurnished. You will have your own room, or may share with another. The rent is usually worked out according to the size of the room. All other expenses are divided; Cooking meals and cleaning are usually shared.
