The Education and Workforce Select Committee is currently undertaking an Inquiry into Student Accommodation. It was commissioned during the COVID-19 Level 2 period, after the poor and inconsistent treatment of students by halls of residence across Aotearoa New Zealand during lockdown.
The Inquiry focuses on both the experience of students during the Covid-19 lockdown, and during normal semesters. It has a broad scope to look at any issues that residents are facing in this space.
To make it easy for you to submit to the Inquiry, we’ve prepared an easy template and submission form below. All submissions that we receive will be sent to the Education and Workforce Select Committee. The template is based on the twelve points that the Inquiry focuses on. More information can be found here.
- ‘Student Accommodation’ refers to both halls of residence and any other accommodation owned, managed or organised by a tertiary provider. This includes ‘Uni Flats’ or ‘Kiwi Host’ arrangements.
- ‘Tertiary providers’ include universities, polytechnics, wānanga, industry training organisations (ITOs) and private training establishments (PTEs).
