18 TE TAHA PŪTEA BUDGETING Whether you are living in university accommodation, renting in town, or living at home you will need to budget carefully. Accommodation fees are payable in advance. You may need between $2,700 and $9,200 to pay the first instalment of your accommodation, and international students will need to pay a full semester at a time (at Wellington, students wanting accommodation for two semesters are required to pay for the full year). For New Zealand students, your student loan or allowance is not received in time to make this payment and will not cover the full cost of remaining instalments. It's therefore important to start planning and saving now. For information about budgeting for your accommodation or assistance with calculating an individual budget, check out our website massey.ac.nz and search for 'budgeting and financial' or contact the budget advisers available on each campus.
