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.


Our accessible and modern Summer Stays accommodation options will make you feel right at home while visiting Auckland. Here’s what you can expect when you arrive:

  • Rooms are fully furnished and well cleaned.
  • All linen and towels are provided, along with soap and shampoo.
  • Coin operated washing machines and tumble dryers are available throughout all our buildings.
  • Parking, recreational facilities and meeting rooms can be booked at an additional cost.
  • Group catering for breakfast, lunch and dinner are available in catered residences.
  • Complimentary wifi in all of the halls and residences.
