Costs of student accommodation

Our 2021 fees are $315 per week. Unlike some other hostels, this fee includes all your meals seven days a week, including snacks and drinks between meals. It also includes internet and fresh linen each week.

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

Internet is included in the weekly fee.

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 or another PTE in Hamilton, consider staying at Taurima Hostel.
