Auckland Summer Stays - Accommodation

Over 1,300 rooms, available from 27 November 2019 until 17 February 2020.

What is Summer Stays?

Auckland Summer Stays is a service provided by the University of Auckland, offering cost effective accommodation in Central Auckland over the summer months. During the academic year our catered and self-catered residences are home to students of the University. Outside of this time, mid-November and early February, many of these properties are vacant and available to rent.

Summer Stays accommodation is available to anyone! You do not have to be a student to stay with us over summer.

55 Symonds – Very new property, good amenities and very quiet considering it is located on main road. Practical for city centre and a few stores close by. Employees were very friendly too.



O’Rorke Hall – Friendly and helpful staff and a convenient location close to the centre of Auckland. The pod was great for our small team.
