There are two main accommodation options that we can arrange for you; Home-stay or Hostel placement. Students who choose to go into a flat must make their own arrangements. Wintec charges a non-refundable accommodation placement fee of $175 to students that we place in accommodation. To ensure a good match with a Home-stay family, it is important that you complete the attached Application Form and return it to the International Office two weeks prior to your arrival. You can either fax this form to us on +64 7 834 8895 or email to Joanna.Morley@wintec.ac.nz.

HOME-STAY ACCOMMODATION The International Office at Wintec can arrange a Home-stay for you from our list of carefully selected New Zealand families. Home-stay is a great way of experiencing New Zealand life, making friends and learning English.

Many students remain in regular contact with their Home-stay family after staying with them and some families have visited their past students in their home countries. 

Living with a Home-stay family allows you to concentrate solely on your studies and includes three meals a day (breakfast, a packed lunch if required and dinner) as well as laundry facilities.

The cost for Home-stay is NZ$210 per week (as of January 2010)

Home-stay placements are made for a minimum of 4 weeks and will require 4 weeks advance payment that should be paid with your tuition fees to Wintec.

Most of our families are located 10-25 minutes by bus from Wintec.

Please note that most New Zealand homes have pets. If you do not wish to live in a home-stay with pets, you need to indicate this on the Application Form

After the first month, a minimum of two weeks’ notice of your intention to leave must be given to the Host family.
