The Cube consists of 86 self-catered shared apartments with a choice of 5 bedroom, 3 bedroom or studio units. There are single and mixed gender apartments and one apartment adapted for accessibility needs. Massey University manages the majority of these apartments, providing accommodation to first year and International Massey University students. We work to build a diverse and strong community within our hall and offer an enriching student life experience by providing quality and safe accommodation, academic support and fun along the way.
Each apartment has a bathroom and a fully equipped kitchen with all the appliances (fridge/freezer, stovetop and oven). Five bedroom and three bedroom apartments have a living area furnished with a dining table, chairs, couch, TV stand and coffee table. Studio apartments have a dining table, chairs and a TV stand.
Bedrooms are furnished with a double bed (singles in studios), a wardrobe, a desk and office chair and a pin board. All bedrooms have windows.
You may bring small items of furniture with you, such as small sets of shelves and under-bed storage. Apart from a mattress protector, bedding is not provided, and you will need your own towels and bathmats, coat hangers, drawing pins, and cleaning materials.
There is one power socket in each bedroom, so we suggest you bring a good quality multiboard/surge protector with you. If you would like to bring a heater with you, column heaters are recommended since no liquid fuelled or gas heaters are permitted. Please take energy efficiency into consideration when choosing electrical equipment. All electrical appliances must comply with the safety inspection requirements AS/NZS 3760.
Citylink is the wireless service provider installed throughout The Cube. It is a prepaid service offering a variety of plans to cater to students’ needs. Access to this service must be set up from within the Cube, so you will be setting this up on your first day at the Cube hall – a nonrefundable package is included in your accommodation fees for the length of your contract.
Laundry facilities are available on the ground floor of The Cube. Laundry is free for residents.
There is a bicycle shed on site. It has limited space available. If you will need to store a bike, email the Cube hall prior to your arrival to guarantee your space. This service attracts an additional fee of $50 for 42 weeks of storage.
We have a common room equipped with a pool table, bean bags and large TV. We also have a recreation room with a kitchenette and lounge space.
There are privately owned car parks available for rent at The Cube. These can be leased directly from the car park owners. We can provide interested residents with the owners' contact details. Cube Residents may apply for a park at KR Hall, which has 25 parking spaces in a secure parking lot.
Each apartment has its own letterbox. Parcels are delivered to the office and placed in the lobby area on a trolley for pick up on Mon-Fri from 9am-7pm.
Deliveries: Supermarket deliveries and pizza deliveries must be received by the tenant in person. The office will not accept these deliveries.
We offer students the opportunity to stay in residence over December and January at discounted rates, on a case by case basis.
As The Cube is self-catered accommodation, students need to purchase groceries and prepare their own meals. We estimate that $100-$120 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.
The 2020 rental rates include reasonable usage of power. This is a generous level of power, determined by the usage of prior occupants. In the unlikely event that students' usage exceeds a reasonable level, they will be responsible for paying the additional costs.
