IPU New Zealand is a residential institute where Kiwi and international students live together in the on-campus Halls of Residence.

Living on-campus is a great way to make new friends with students from all over the world. This multicultural interaction brings invaluable opportunities to expand your cultural knowledge and broaden your thinking.

There are ten Halls of Residence on site, with a variety of room options. Each Hall has a large common room - perfect for relaxing with your Hall mates, kitchen facilities for the preparation of meals, laundry and cleaning facilities, and 24/7 security.



IPU New Zealand is perfectly set up for sports teams and groups visiting Palmerston North and are looking to stay near the city centre. Staying at IPU New Zealand will provide access (on arrangement) to conference rooms, basketball courts, a well-appointed gym, changing room facilities and more.

Sports teams and groups will enjoy the use of the kitchen facilities in each Hall.
