Despite this unusual title, ‘Windy Wellington’ remains a popular destination for international students. Wellington even has a site welcoming students coming to the city to study. Flatsharing in Wellington is a great way to live in this beautiful city for a reasonable price, leaving you more money to spend on all the capital of New Zealand has to offer.Why choose Wellington?
With three world ranked universities, Wellington is a great choice for ambitious students in all manner of fields. A degree from any of Wellington’s universities will set a student on the right course after graduation. Wellington is the political, cultural and scientific heart of New Zealand, but the compact city has its own identity. A ride on the famous Wellington Cable Car or a view from the top of Mount Victoria will make you fall in love with the city’s surroundings. Cuba Street – the coolest street in the city – is a great visit, with quirky bohemian cafés, shops, restaurants and meeting places. If that isn’t for you, the city also has a rich cultural history and a wide range of museums such as Te Papa Tongarewa, the national museum of New Zealand. Wellington is host to Beervana, New Zealand’s beer festival, a celebration of the country’s high quality brews and brewers!

Like many cities in New Zealand, Wellington has its fair share of flatshares and houseshares. Popular student areas include Aro Valley, a popular area close to the Victoria University of Wellington with a large student population, Roseneath, which has superb views provided by the rather large hill, and Mount Cook, a cheaper area with a fair amount of students within walking distance of the CBD. All these areas offer different things; whether you want to be close to university, have cheaper rents or be in a thriving area, there is a place for you. Rents can vary depending on the area, but Wellington does have a short stock of available accommodation and flatting is very popular among students, meaning that competition can be high.
