Kāinga Rua Hall

Massey Wellington is offering accommodation to first and second year students from February 2018 in its new hall Kāinga Rua, currently operating as Taranaki 217.

Kāinga Rua offers students the opportunity to live with full privacy in spacious single and twin share rooms with en-suite bathrooms, while using shared common areas to cook and eat. This hall is perfect for those wanting to transition from school to university but are not yet ready to take up the commitments of sharing a flat. It is located within a short walk to the campus, with the full support of a pastoral care team and events and initiatives that foster academic success and build strong life skills.

Massey Wellington’s two halls, The Cube Hall and Kāinga Rua, will share inter hall events and activities, while offering distinctive experiences to residents. The same pastoral care team will ensure the hall experience is cohesive and positive with 24/7 support for residents. Our partner Hall, 222 Willis, will also be part of our events calendar.

Additional Tips

  • Your residential fees include a generous level of power (based on past use figures).
  • Studylink assistance will not begin in time to pay the initial accommodation payment.
  • The Residential Agreement is for a 42 week period from 18/02/2018 to 9/12/2018, for all residents.
    NB: Some programmes are shorter than these dates, but the 42 week charge will apply should you check out early.
  • Different rates apply for International single-semester students.

Additional Costs to Consider

Internet

There is a wireless service provider installed throughout this hall. It is a service offering a variety of plans which can be purchased from the Hall.

Insurance

The Residential Agreement requires students to have an insurance policy for their contents. Some policies cover the belongings of a student as part of their parents' policy. If this is not the case in your situation, please arrange coverage for your contents yourself.

In addition, liability insurance is also a good idea in case you unintentionally damage the building, as you will be responsible for the $1,000 insurance excess of any claim.

Groceries

As this hall is self-catered accommodation, students need to purchase groceries and prepare their own meals. We estimate that $80-$100 should be sufficient for a week's worth of groceries, however this will depend on personal preferences. You may find your first grocery bills are higher as you set your pantry up.

Power

The 2018 rental rates include reasonable usage of power and gas. In the unlikely event that students' power usage exceeds a reasonable level, they will be responsible for paying the additional costs.
