What to Bring

As you begin your studies and become part of the Eastwest College family, here are some details that you will find helpful.

Our purpose-built units are fully furnished with lounge, dining and bedroom furniture as well as plates and dishes, cutlery and usual kitchen utensils. For all international students, we also provide your bedding, pillows, towels and face cloths.

For your arrival at the college, as a residential student we ask you to bring the following items:

  • Your clothes and personal requirements, toiletries and any medicines
  • A laptop if you have one. There is a small computer suite with good broadband access in the library for students to use. Personal printing can be done in the library with a “per sheet” charge.
  • Each student is required to do one half day’s practical work each week e.g. gardening, helping with the building programme, painting etc. You will need some old clothes to use during this time. If you don’t have room in your luggage to bring any with you, there are plenty of cheap or second-hand clothes shops in Hamilton, our nearest shopping centre (about 20 minutes drive away).

Unlimited internet access is available through the college WiFi.

If you have any queries, or are not sure about whether additional items can be brought to the college, please do not hesitate to contact the college on office@eastwest.ac.nz.
