Cube room

The Cube Hall

Situated within a diverse and dynamic city and only minutes from the most creative campus in New Zealand, it's all at your door when you're living at The Cube.

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 high quality and safe accommodation, academic support and fun along the way.

Inside Your Apartment

Each apartment has a bathroom and a fully equipped kitchen with all the appliances (microwave, 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.

Inside Your Bedroom

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 (there is a 135mm high gap between the floor and bed). 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.

Building Facilities

Wireless Internet

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 – bring your credit/debit card!

Other finances to consider

Groceries

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.

Power

The 2019 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.
