Apartment style living

Wellesley Student Apartments offers self-catered accommodation for 502 students. Just a 3-minute walk to the City Campus and close to public transport links, on-campus living is a convenient, safe and social lifestyle.

Special requests for apartment groups

Apartment groups are chosen based on age and course of study, but we will do our best to accommodate any special requests.

When you apply for accommodation, you can tell us if you would prefer to live in a single or mixed gender group and add any comments like rainbow friendly or low alcohol.

Security and support

You can expect a safe and positive university experience at AUT.

The apartments have onsite security 24 hours a day and you also get support from residential assistants (RAs). RAs are student staff members who live in our student accommodation – they provide academic or personal support to residents.

Student accommodation offers a 'residential life' programme during the year, so you can get to know other people and join in social events.
