One way to immerse yourself in the Kiwi culture and make new friends is to live amongst Kiwi students. At the Wellington campus, students can choose from university managed Flats or Apartments (off-campus - self catered). Students enjoy the social environment and recreational events organized between the Massey housing facilities. Accommodation is within a short distance from central campus and guaranteed to international students.
Student life is not just about studying and so Massey provides you with a range of indoor and outdoor recreational, cultural and leisure programmes through the Recreation and Student Association Centres at each campus. Wellington is New Zealand 's capital city and a great place to live. It is a compact city, set between a magnificent harbor and rolling green hills, where shops, exciting galleries and great restaurants are within easy walking distance. The Wellington campus is centrally located near the city's artistic and entertainment quarters of Cuba Street and Courtenay Place.
