Register for a buddy

Sign up for our International Buddy Programme. Your buddy will show you around campus and help you adjust to University life.

Our Buddy Programme pairs you up with a current student, who’ll:

  • get in touch with you by email before you arrive
  • meet you at Victoria and show you around campus
  • give you information about university life
  • help you out with local customs and living in Wellington.

You’ll be part of a larger network of international and domestic students, who all meet up at events run by the International Buddy Programme.

International Buddy registration for Trimester 2 2019 has now finished. Buddy registration for Trimester 3 will commence in October 2019.

We’ll try to pair you up with someone who matches as many of your preferences as possible—but we can’t guarantee they’ll match exactly.

If you have any problems with your buddy, email the Buddy Programme coordinator at
