Yes, all students are required to complete an Accommodation Application Form or a Homestay Booking Form. The online Accommodation Application Form should be completed once you receive your Offer of Place from Massey University.
You should apply for accommodation as soon as you receive your Offer of Place. The sooner you complete the application form, the better your chance is of securing your preferred accommodation choice.
Students are guaranteed accommodation when they have confirmed their Offer of Place to study at Massey, applied for accommodation using the online form, and have paid the associated deposit to the Accommodation Office to confirm their room booking.
Students are required to provide their own blankets, towels and pillows.
