Two weeks free accommodation
We pay for your first two weeks accommodation when SIT International students stay at SIT Apartments or at a homestay.
During orientation we run an accommodation workshop which tells you about all your options including renting, boarding, joining an established flat, homestays, and SIT Apartments. It gives you the opportunity to ask us all your questions in a casual environment.
Low living costs
Choose Southland and you will benefit from our low cost of living. According to New Zealand Government data (Department of Building and Housing), you can save at least $60 a week ($3224 a year) on the cost of one room compared with Auckland. If you choose a two bedroom apartment, you will save $291 a week. That leaves more money in your pocket for other things like entertainment!
