looking for accomodation for the winter (April-September 2006)

by Graeme36

Hi,
Im doing some research at the University of Waikato for 4 months and will be looking for a nice cheap motel etc (any suggestions?). The university cant offer me any place to stay because they are over subscribed already. Ill have around $300 a week for accomodation. It must be fairly near to the university as I wont have my own transport. Does anybody have any suggestions?.
many thanks.

The university hostels usually go well before the new year. The Waikato Times is one of Hamiltons most popular newspaper. Try putting an add in there. Hillcrest is mostly within walking distance to the Uni. But Hamilton has public transport thats fairly reliable (in my opinion). Definately advertise in the paper though you should get a few bites, maybe even from Uni students who are short a flatmate? Good Luck!

Yes have a good look in the local paper (Waikato Times) or log into www.stuff.co.nz and have a look at the paper online. Your budget will give you a reasonably good house but may not come furnished, check this beforehand. As you are only here for a short time, you could also look at making some enquires with a few of the hotels in the centre of town. It's up to you whether you would like a little bit of a luxury or not.

Travel Tips for Hamilton

Where Riff-Raff lived before he became Riff-Raff

by Kimi_the_Bear

Before Richard O'Brien became the famous Riff Raff of the famous Rocky Horror Picture Show he was a not very famous resident of the city of Hamilton, the biggest city of the Waikato region. He worked there as a hairdresser, and while looking out of the salon where he worked he saw the movie theatre where they showed double feature films, and there he got the idea for writing the musical The Rocky Horror Show. This happened long after he had left New Zealand for his birth country, England.

But they have set up this Riff Raff statue in Hamilton, at the site of the building which once housed the Embassy Movie Theatre and the hair salon. You can do the Time Warp on the footpath ;-)



Although Hamilton is not really spectacular, it has some interesting places and things to do.

I met this sharp-toothed monster in front of the Waikato Museum which sits above the mighty Waikato River which runs through the city.



The Hamilton Gardens are quite popular with visitors. This huge Maori cloak is located beside the access road off SH 1.
