College life is an exciting adventure where you make lifelong friends and are supported to achieve your academic goals.

We also pride ourselves on providing ongoing strong academic support to our residents as they make the transition to tertiary study.

Here is what Salmond residents have to say.

I love Salmond because it helped me have the best work/life balance and has given me life-long friendships.


Living in Salmond is the warmest most loving and exciting experience. I have felt supported and cared for all year by staff and students.


The staff are incredibly friendly and the food is delicious, but what really sets the ‘Mond apart, are the amazing opportunities available to residents. Personally, my favourite thing about living at the ‘Mond is being a part of the executive team.


As I am leaving Salmond...I would like to thank all my fellow peers for the best year of my life. So many memories with friends or should I say family!! As I’ve grown one centimetre my heart has grown 10. Ngā Mihi
