SIT can confirm that eligible students, in addition to getting their tertiary studies under the TTAF initiative for free, will also be able to apply for free shared accommodation at SIT’s apartments in Invercargill or receive subsidised rent rates at our Queenstown accommodation units for the academic year (40 weeks’ maximum). The rent subsidy in Queenstown is $120/week, and students will need to top up the rent by $40/week to be allocated into a twin sharing room.
Eligible students can also opt to apply for a single room and pay the following costs:
Invercargill – top up rent amount is $105/week
Queenstown – top up rent amount is $140/week
If they qualify, a student is entitled to the accommodation bursary, for 1 academic year (40 weeks) once in their ‘student life’ with SIT.
