Residential Dates in 2018

Move-in date is Saturday 17 February.

The fees above cover accommodation for the period Saturday 17 February to 24 hours after the student's last exam or Sunday 11 November, whichever is earlier. Members are required to leave within 24 hours of the last exam in the interests of those still studying. Any exemption will only be given by the Master and a daily charge will apply.

Please note that those who are required to start their course earlier than 17 February and wish to stay at the College, an additional daily charge will apply.

Accommodation for Parents

Unfortunately, we are unable to accommodate parents at the College should they wish to accompany you at the start of the academic year. However, there are plenty of other choices of accommodation in Dunedin that they can choose from. We recommend the University's Executive Residence just down the road from the College.

Payment Methods

All amounts are in New Zealand dollars and are payable by cash (in person only), cheque, direct credit, telegraphic transfer, or in person or online credit card (a 3% surcharge applies for credit card payments). Any bank fees associated with transferring funds must be paid by the applicant. Any bank fees unaccounted for in the amount transferred will be invoiced for reimbursement.

Bank account and telegraphic transfer details are provided on our invoice.

Student Loans

StudyLink will not cover residential college accommodation fees. In some cases students may be able to claim an accommodation supplement and accumulate this to cover the 2nd and 3rd instalment payments.
