2016 Accommodation Fees
The information provided on this page is for the 2016 year. Current 2015 residents on July'15/July'16 residential agreement periods can still find their fee schedules listed at the bottom of this page.
Charges and payments
Accommodation fees are calculated for the full period stated in the Residential Agreement, and include utilities such as water, electricity, and internet access to the University's broadband system. In the catered Halls, meals are also included (with the exception of Huia Residence where meals are additional).
Accommodation fees for the term of your residential agreement are charged to your account in the following way:
- Advance Payment & Residential Services Fee: These are both charged to your account prior to the start of your residential period and payment must be received before you are permitted to check into residence.
- Remaining Balance: The remaining balance of your accommodation fees will be applied to your account fortnightly according to the payment schedules below. You are required to make payment of each fortnightly charge by the corresponding due date.
- Additional Charges: It is your responsibility to ensure that any additional charges made to your account due to damages, defaulting on payments, or items purchased through the online shop are paid in full before you check-out.
The deposit of $650.00 you paid at the time you accepted your Residential Agreement, will be credited to your room account at the beginning of your residential period, which means you can minus $650 from your Advance Payment total indicated on the payment schedule for your residence.
For example; if you are moving into a single room for the Full Academic Year, your required advance payment would be $1504.28 and your residential services fee would be $270 ($1774.28 total). Once you minus the $650 you have already paid, you have $1,124.28 left to pay before you move in.
Please note: The period of the residential agreement is fixed. You will be required to pay for the accommodation for the full period you have agreed to even if you arrive later than the start date, or leave prior to the end date.
