Semester on the South Island, New Zealand

From sea kayaking and mountaineering to wine tasting and sheep shearing, you’ll love all that the South Island has to offer. Your Kiwi host (local New Zealand student) will show you around your new home at the country’s oldest university.

As a Semester on the South Island, New Zealand student, your accommodation will be self-catered, at the Otago University Flats.

The university flats are located within a few minutes walking distance from the University of Otago campus and only 10 minutes from the main city shopping center.  Each of the flats is furnished, includes a basic kitchen set up to prepare your meals, and all of the bedrooms contain a double bed with mattress, a desk, chair, and drawers.  Students who live in these off-campus flats will have the opportunity to live with New Zealanders, and can immerse themselves in, and learn more about, the Kiwi culture.
