Huia Residence

Located on the Grafton Campus close to the trendy Newmarket and Parnell shopping precincts, and only a short walk away from the General Library on the City Campus, Huia is home to 321 residents each year.

About the hall

Huia offers the best of both worlds where students who enjoy an independent style of living, can choose to be self-catered, or for those who want a more traditional Hall of Residence experience can choose to be fully catered.

The Accommodation Management team which consists of the Area Manager, Resident Manager, Area Administrator, Area Officer and Resident Advisors provide personal support throughout your stay and arrange a number of social and recreational activities during the year.

Our Resident Advisors all live on-site, and the Huia reception is open 24/7 to ensure you have a duty person available 24 hours a day.
