Auckland Summer Stays is a service provided by the University of Auckland, offering cost effective accommodation in Central Auckland over the summer months.

There are a number of catered and self-catered residences at the University of Auckland. During the academic year (mid-February- early November) these 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 for groups and independent travellers to rent.

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

Most Summer Stays rooms are suitable for individual occupants, however we have a number of accommodation types available to book:

  • Our Halls of Residence are for group bookings only. They offer single rooms with shared, lockable bathrooms and have an additional option to be catered
  • Studio apartments: single bed-sit room with kitchenette and ensuite
