Warren and Mahoney has designed a new 90-room student accommodation building on Selwyn Street, creating the opportunity and fulfilling the need for campus accommodation for the University of Waikato students.

The unique lifestyle Tauranga offers complements the new University. The design of the student accommodation differentiates itself from any other student village in New Zealand due to the natural environment it sits within, its close proximity to the harbour, surf beaches, CBD and University campus.

The design looks to work within a vibrant and treasured environment supporting intertwined urban and coastal lifestyles. Development and revitalisation of the city centre presents the opportunity for an integrated urban campus that responds to, and reflects, the commercial and residential environment of Tauranga.
