A Kiwi Host is a New Zealand student, usually an undergraduate, who lives in a University Flat (Uni Flats) with the residents.

This gives international students the opportunity to meet domestic students ("Kiwis"), as well as a support person in their flat who can help during their transition into New Zealand life. Most Uni Flats have a Kiwi Host.

Applying to be a Kiwi Host

Kiwi Host applications for the following year open in mid-July. Information will be sent via email and through flyers around campus.

Application packs are also available from the Uni Flats office at 109 St David Street, Dunedin. If you are interested in being a Kiwi Host please email flats@otago.ac.nz to find out more.
