Live in a furnished townhouse-style home at Akoranga Student Village, within a five-minute walk of classes at Auckland University of Technology’s North Shore Campus. After class, you can drive across the bay in 15 minutes to explore Auckland city centre, or stroll 15 minutes to pick up your shopping from the local Countdown supermarket.
When you get home, join your housemates on the comfy lounge chairs in the open plan living area, and kick back in front of your favourite TV shows. Rustle up some dinner in the well-equipped shared kitchen, which includes an oven, microwave and basic cooking equipment, and eat at the dining room table. You can take a shower in one of the two bathrooms when you’re finished.
When you need to hit the books, settle down at the desk in your room and use the internet to study in peace. If you’d rather study as part of a group, sit down at one of the computers in the common room and bounce your ideas off your friends. After a productive session, let off steam with a game of pool or table tennis, or watch Sky shows on the 42-inch TV in the common room. Gather your friends for basketball and volleyball games if you feel like getting some exercise.
You’ll find it easy to make friends at Akoranga Student Village, with regular community events to keep you entertained. Check with one of the on-site resident assistants if you have any questions. Utilities like electricity, water and internet are included in your rent, so you also don’t need to worry about getting any unexpected bills.
