There are lots of different residences to choose from in your first year. O’rorke is known to be a party hall, Whitaker is more homely because it’s small and is an older building, Towers and apartments has nicer (brand new) facilities. Each hall has something awesome that it brings to the table, and no matter which hall you get into you’re bound to have an awesome first year. However one of my favorite things about living right next to towers is that early in the morning we can wake up, and head on over to floor 14 to watch the sunrise over the city and Rangitoto island. It’s amazing! – xx Beth
