Auckland is a very popular destination for students, workers and families and accommodation can be expensive! You should expect to pay $350-$700 per week for a three-bedroom home OR $150-$300 per room per week in a shared flat. Private board is also available for around $150-$300 per week.
Unfortunately Carey is not in the position to assist students to find accommodation in Auckland and International students must make their own arrangements to find accommodation. (We do have some very limited student accommodation available off-site; however, you must contact us for information on its availability as it is normally fully booked).
On the Carey notice board there are often notices advertising houses to rent, or flatmates wanted. (Please note that this accommodation will NOT be assessed by Carey Baptist College, and it is your responsibility to ensure the suitability of the accommodation.) Ask our friendly support staff to guide you to where this is.
These websites are a useful source to find accommodation in Auckland:
www.canz.co.nz – Christian flats/houses to rent and flatmates accommodation
We suggest you arrive in Auckland at least two weeks before classes start to find suitable accommodation.
The New Zealand Government Department of Building and Housing website has useful information on residential tenancies. See www.dbh.govt.nz/tenants-index.
Please note that you are required to notify Carey of your residential address as well as the type of accommodation you are living in (eg house, flat, boarding). If these details change you must also immediately notify us as it is important that we have your up-to-date contact details.
