Wintec Apartments

Live on campus in the heart of the Hamilton CBD! 

Avoid the unforeseen flatting costs of internet, phone, power, transport and other outgoings and enjoy the benefits of living amongst other students on the campus in a modern, safe, and secure environment.

The Wintec Apartments provide accommodation for mature students and international students who are looking for a convenient, affordable, shared living experience.

You'll get your own bedroom furnished with a king single bed, wardrobe, desk, heater, and chairs.

The apartments are self-catering and provide an experience similar to flatting.

Wellbeing and safety practices

The Wintec Apartments is designed to be similar to a self-sufficient flatting environment for predominately mature students and allows residents to balance independent living with a supportive student community. Trained staff (three Residential Leaders) live on-site to provide pastoral care to residents. Because of the self-sufficient nature of the accommodation, there is an emphasis on residents resolving issues amongst themselves in the first instance. A Residential Manager lives nearby. Each resident is assigned a Residential Leader as a first point-of-contact for general matters. The ratio of Residential Leaders to residents is approximately 1:25. A staff member is on duty after hours and can be contacted for emergencies. Unexplained absences from the community are investigated twice a week. Staff and residents facilitate a range of events and activities throughout the year to help create a vibrant, enriching community where every resident has the opportunity to make new friends and undergo personal growth.
