To be eligible for an offer of accommodation you must apply online by the due date specified, pay the $75 application fee and have a satisfactory confidential reference from your school.

The majority of accommodation offers are made approximately one week after the application due date. 


Victoria House accepts full-time VUW and Non-VUW students who typically stay for the full academic year. Priority is given to students whose homes are outside the greater Wellington region. Students are selected according to the University's guaranteed offer and equity criteria, to create a diverse hall community by considering gender balance, cultural diversity, degree type and geographical representation.


Due to the high number of applications we receive, we prioritise first year students. Applications from returning students are not guaranteed an offer.


Victoria House accommodates 181 residents:
133 residents in single rooms and
48 residents in twin share rooms.

Note:
We try our best to place you in your first preference, but this is not guaranteed.
