McHardy is the oldest hall on the Manawatū campus, so it has plenty of old school charm and character. The large spacious bedrooms provide a generous living space and comfortable study environment. The hall is at the end of Refectory Road, near the Oval, which is the perfect place for a picnic or game of touch rugby. The hall is an alcohol-free zone.
(Room rates for 2021 will be released no later than the 31 August 2020)
All students can pay by semester or full year. Only domestic students can pay on a weekly basis by direct debit.
