College House is for enthusiastic and interesting students who intend making the most of their time at UC and who see the value in joining a community committed to excellence. If that appeals, we invite you to apply.

There are three steps in the process:

  1. An application
  2. A referee’s report from your school
  3. An interview
Application

Applications for places at CH and all UC halls of residence are made through the UC website. You can't apply directly to CH.

In the section of the form that asks you to nominate a hall of residence, choose College House. You have three choices so be sure to put College House as your first choice to have the best chance of being accepted.

Referee’s report

Fill in your part of the NZCCRF Student Registration for Accomodation. Your school will be asked to provide a confidential referee's report. UC will organise this: when completed it will be sent directly from your school to UC and then on to us.

Interview

Before inviting you to join us at CH we would like to get to know you better. We recommend applicants arrange for an interview, however, it is not compulsory - all applicants will get equal consideration.

 Interviews for 2018

Interviews are available Monday 1.30pm-4pm and Tuesday-Friday 10am-12pm and 1.30pm-4pm.  You can book your interview through the University Liaison Office or by contacting the CH office.

If time and/or distance prevent you visiting CH to complete your interview, there are two other options available. Contact This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. for further information on the following:

  2. Request a personal profile sheet. Complete and return to the office.
Tours & Open Day

You are welcome to look around CH. You can arrange a tour any time during the year, on weekdays, through the University Liaison Office.

Every year there is a UC Open Day in the July school holidays and you can register here. CH will be open too, with guided tours throughout the day. If you’re planning to apply, we suggest arranging to complete your interview while you are here. Book a time before you arrive or on the day.

There is the opportunity to stay at CH while you’re here for Open Day. Contact us for more information about this.
