Residential Dates in 2019

The move-in date is Saturday, 16 February 2019.

The fees above cover accommodation for the period Saturday, 16 February 2019 to 24 hours after the student's last exam or Sunday, 10 November 2019, whichever is earlier. Members are required to leave within 24 hours of the last exam in the interests of those still studying. Any exemption will only be given by the Master and a daily charge will apply.

Please note that those who are required to start their course earlier than Saturday, 16 February 2019 and wish to stay at the College, an additional daily charge will apply.

Accommodation for Parents

Unfortunately, we are unable to accommodate parents at the College should they wish to accompany you at the start of the academic year. However, there are plenty of other choices of accommodation in Dunedin that they can choose from. We recommend the University's Executive Residence just down the road from the College.
