Whitireia guarantees to arrange you Homestay accommodation if required. We strongly advise that you choose Homestays that Whitireia has approved.

Homestay is a great way to learn about New Zealand culture and host families are carefully chosen for you to stay with. Your family will provide you with a single bedroom, meals and clean bed linen and towels.

Living with a new family for the first time can be challenging for students and host families. It takes time and effort but living with a family is one of the best ways to experience a country and its culture. It will also help you with your English.
