At Rocklands we offer a range of facilities to make your stay as comfortable and convenient as possible
We know how important it is to stay connected – that’s why we offer wifi to all rooms! . Our 3 Month Student Deal includes Unlimited WIFI and for those not on a Student Deal, there are various affordable plans on offer. We also provide computers for residents to use in the common areas with 30 minutes of free internet per day.
Our Kitchen is fitted with gas and electric utilities with lots of room to move. It’s the perfect environment to meet people from all over the world, prepare a meal and learn new recipes. All you need is your own cooking and dining utensils. Our kitchen opens at 6am every morning and closes at 12:30am the following morning.
Our property at Rocklands, with its established trees and lawns, provides many locations to sit quietly and relax and look out over some of Auckland’s extinct volcanoes.
Our location makes public transport easily accessible. With the purchase of a HOP card, you can catch a bus to the city for $1.50. The train can also be caught from Newmarket or Grafton. We’re also within walking distance of a number of universities and education facilities.
Our on-site fitness room features everything you need for your workout routine – with everything from dumbbells, weights, yoga mats, a treadmill and more.
We grow vegetables for residents to use. During the week we pick these for you and they are available from the Kitchen. Alternatively, you can harvest your own from our garden.
Right outside the main kitchen and lounge, our BBQ area receives the afternoon sun and is a delightful location to spend your summers and join in on group BBQs.
Rocklands has 36 spaces in our secure, gated carpark. If you are working, you can rent a carpark for $25/week plus $100 Bond which is refundable at the end of your stay. Students receive a discounted rate of $15/week plus a $50 refundable Bond. All other parking is off-site.
Our commercial washers and dryers are coin-operated and cost $4 for washing, and $5 for drying. You will need to supply your own laundry detergent or you can purchase small quantities from the Office for just $1. We also have outdoor clotheslines which are great if you would prefer not to use the driers.
