Accommodation with Hatch Student Living

Logo for Hatch Student Living

Are you looking for on-site accommodation while you study at Wintec? Find your home away from home here with us.


Applications are open.
Please find details on how to apply below.

We know that everyone’s needs are different. Our accommodation services recognise this. That’s why we offer three different styles of accommodation for our students.

  • If this is your first time away from home, the Student Village based at our City Campus, with meals provided, is a convenient, supportive environment for you.
  • For those seeking more independence and still want to be apart of a student community, the Wintec Apartments are a great option. This city-based accommodation is popular with mature students and international students, who are happy to arrange their own meals. 
  • The Rotokauri Eco Village, suited for students who are aged 20+ or second-year (or higher) students, provides an experience similar to flatting, where accommodation is shared between four students.

We welcome you to speak to us about any questions you may have, and we are happy to recommend the best fit for you. Please contact us on +64 07 834 9224 or email us at

How the cost compares to flatting

Our student accommodation options provide a safe, comfortable, and cost-effective place to stay in Hamilton while you study.

Furniture and utilities are included with all of our accommodation options. In the Wintec Student Village, food is also included in the weekly fee. 

If you choose to go flatting instead of staying in student accommodation, you'll have additional costs to cover, such as arranging and paying for power, internet, furniture, and food. When you take these expenses into account, living with us is comparable to the average cost of flatting in Hamilton. You can find out more about the up-to-date costs of flatting in central Hamilton here
