If you are coming to study in Hamilton and are looking for a great place to stay, don’t look any further.

Taurima means “a place of shelter”, and it’s like a home away from home, where you are well looked after but can still be independent.

All of the residents are students, and most are studying at tertiary level, and living away from home, for the first time. The average age is 18. We all eat together for lunch and dinner which helps with getting to know people, and makes for a closer community.

No mass produced food

We don't want to brag, but our food has a great reputation. Because we are smaller than most hostels, our food doesn't have that "mass-produced" look and taste. It's good, honest food!
