Student Life & Housing

Student Life

Through this program, students have the opportunity to explore New Zealand with a cohort of students, living and learning together. Students have independent internships, but will all come together in the evenings to share what they learned and maybe cook a meal together. With evenings and weekends free during the internship, students have time to do their own exploring.

During the National Expedition, students will spend most nights in YHA Hostels. Staying in hostels gives students an excellent opportunity to meet students and travelers from around the world. Breakfast will be included on some days, while the remaining meals students will cook/plan on their own. Once in the internship portion of the program, students will be housed in a summer camp-style agricultural community hostel, located in an orchard.

The hostel has separate accommodation buildings for males and females, with a kitchen, recreation hall, and laundry facilities. A Residential Advisor will be living on site to assist students with anything that arises. Group cooking facilities will be available, and breaksfasts and lunches are provided. Dinners will be the responsibility of individual students.
