On Campus Community

The Accommodation Services Team is responsible for the overall health, security, safety, welfare and wellbeing of all students living on campus in the Halls of Residence and Student Units. Accommodation Services employs around 30 Residential Assistants (RA's) who live in the halls and units with you. Their role is to help you to create an environment where you can have fun, be safe, succeed academically, and feel happy living in Massey Accommodation. The RA's are supervised and supported by the Halls Management Team, who also live on campus.

Throughout the year Accommodation Services organise a number of different social, cultural and sporting events to create opportunities for residents to interact with each other, have fun, and develop a sense of belonging to their hall and community.

There are four residential communities at the Manawatu Campus: Turitea, The Courts, Moginie and Atawhai
