Helen Lowry Hall Board has made a difficult decision to make the 2023 Academic Year the last year we operate as a University Residential Hall. 


Helen Lowry Hall has been operating for near 75 years providing residential support to local and international university students as they transition stages in life and move away from home to undergo study. We have been supported by a wonderful team throughout the years, so our thanks goes out to them and all our residents. 


There are a number of external factors that have driven our decision - and we no longer see it financially sustainable to retain hall operations without passing on significant cost increases to our residents.


Once again - we thank you for the support over the past decades, we will be looking at ways to celebrate and recognise our achievements over the years, and will also be exploring other options for how we can continue to support students as they undertake future study. 

There's something special about being one of the oldest. Helen Lowry Hall is your 'home away from home' while you study in Wellington. We welcome first year and returning students, and have a range of fully catered and self-catered rooms.
