There are a number of private accommodation options for Massey students. The University is not responsible for private accommodation but the accommodation office can offer advice and support to students living in or wanting to live in private accommodation. We can help you with knowing where to find accommodation, plus what to be aware of when renting in Palmerston North and New Zealand.
Private accommodation can include hostels, apartments, houses, units, flats or boarding. Your accommodation adviser will be able to give you lots of options near your campus.
There are a number of ways to find private accommodation at Massey, and here are a few of them. Flats and apartments are advertised:

Please feel free to drop in or contact the office with any queries.
After their first year of study, many students move into rented flats. Sometimes it can be quite a change from living in a Hall of Residence or managed apartment, and there are some important things to consider before you take the plunge.
We recommend that you look at a selection of flats before choosing one. When it comes to the lease, make sure you read the document and that you and your flatmates are aware of your responsibilities before you sign it. If there’s anything you don’t understand, call your local accommodation adviser or contact the nearest branch of Tenancy Services.
If you have problems during the year, either with your flatmates or landlord, you can get help from the Accommodation Office, or the Students’ Association at your campus.
