Taratahi has two residential campuses, all of our other regional campuses are non-residential.

Wairarapa:

  • In the Wairarapa our more mature students, or students who do not want to live on campus, have other options available.
  • Masterton, a short 10 minute drive from our residential campus, has a number of rental accommodation properties available.  
  • Students who chose to live off campus need to build in travel time to campus each morning - especially our dairy students who have very early starts!

Some advantages of living on campus include:

  • You won’t have to factor in travel time to and from campus (better time management).
  • You’ll be with other students who are on a similar career pathway which will give you contacts for the future as well as the opportunity to develop strong friendships.
  • Fun activities and events are organised for you.
  • First year students enjoy three hearty meals a day in our dining room.
  • We create a family environment for you.
  • Campus Manager as well as staff who live on campus 24-7 who provide support, advice and structure for you. More
