Unfortunately Carey is not able to help students to find accommodation in Auckland. (We do have some very limited student accommodation available off-site; however, you must contact us for information on its availability as it is normally fully booked.)
Accommodation in Auckland can expensive! Students should expect to pay $350-$500 per week for a three-bedroom home OR $150-$200 per room per week in a shared flat. Private board is also available for around $150-$250 per week.
On the Carey notice board there are often notices advertising houses to rent, or flatmates wanted. (Please note that this accommodation will NOT be assessed by Carey Baptist College, and it is the responsibility of students to ensure the suitability of the accommodation.)
The New Zealand Government Department of Building and Housing website has useful information on residential tenancies. See www.dbh.govt.nz/tenants-index .
Our International Student Advisors may be able to advise students having problems finding accommodation.
Please note that international students are required to notify Carey of their residential address as well as the type of accommodation they are living in (eg house, flat, boarding). If these details change Carey must be notified immediately to ensure up-to-date contact details.
The Auckland Baptist Tabernacle Hostel is an excellent option for single students. This offers a community lifestyle with modern facilities in the Auckland CBD.
