Costs of student accommodation

Our 2024 fees are $360, per week. Unlike some other hostels, this fee includes all your meals seven days a week, including snacks and drinks between meals and fresh linen each week.

Internet is included in the weekly fee.

Washing or drying your clothes costs $3 per load. This price includes laundry detergent.

The bond is $650. This will be refunded at the end of the academic year, less any deductions for damage or unpaid debts to the hostel.

There are no hidden costs! 

If you are studying at Waikato University, Wintec, Vision College or another PTE in Hamilton, consider staying at Taurima Hostel.
