Dunedin gets cold in winter, so good warm clothing is essential. University Flats are not centrally heated (though flats will either have a heatpump or electric heating, and all bedrooms are provided with heaters) and you may find the indoor temperature cooler than at home.
Linen and bedding are supplied for shared accommodation or can be hired from Uni Flats, but we also recommend that you bring a good-quality sleeping bag as this can be used when you are travelling around New Zealand and can also be used as additional bedding on those cooler nights!
We suggest you bring (or purchase upon arrival):
- personal items to make your bedroom feel homely
- musical instruments
- laptop or desktop computer
- national costume or suitable clothing for semi-formal occasions
It is also important that you bring any essential medications with you. If you have any queries about this please contact us.
