Waikato University Scholarship and Accommodation Information
It’s time to start applying for scholarships! Our scholarships for school leavers are now open so please ensure students submit an application in advance of the August 31st closing date.
We have provided templates for the personal statements required for most of the school leaver scholarships on our website here. The Principal’s Assessment Form will be sent to the staff member’s email address that the student lists in their online application but only once the student has fully submitted their online scholarship application. If you would like to make a head start on this form, it can be downloaded here.
Students can use the Scholarships Finder to check their eligibility, open and closing dates, and application details.
Halls of Residence – Accommodation
Students can now apply for our Halls of Residence. We have three main halls available to school leavers: College Hall, Student Village, and Bryant Hall. We encourage students to submit their applications well in advance of the 1 October close date.
We also have a number of accommodation options available for students who are considering study at our Tauranga Campus.
