If you are considering accommodation for 2021 the are some excellent reasons to select Salmond College. In 2019 every student who selected Salmond as their first choice college was offered a place, taking away the anxiety of being placed on a waitlist if they missed their first choice and 'seeing what happens'. Salmond is a warm, inviting, diverse community. With 260 residents it is the perfect size to make friends, yet not be too large to overwhelm. Unlike many other colleges, Salmond College offers residents the opportunity to return for a second or third year, some in ensuite rooms or one of the larger 25 rooms throughout the college, providing ongoing support and a sense of home for more than just the first year for many residents.
Salmond is focused on providing a home away from home where you will be known, cared for, supported and nurtured. Whatever your academic pursuit we welcome your application for 2021. Feel free to contact us to arrange a tour of the College at firstname.lastname@example.org . we look forward to meeting you!

An impt announcement, communicated to all Salmond residents today, 14 March 2020:
"The government has announced today that any person returning to New Zealand after 11.59pm on Sunday 15 March will have to self-isolate for 14 days (except for those coming from the Pacific Islands where this currently does not apply). This is significant for any student considering overseas travel as on return to the country they will not be able to return to the college until they have self-isolated for 14 days.
The exception to traveling to the Pacific may change at any time, so residents should make their own informed decisions about such travel. Residents who choose to travel remain liable for college fees during the time they are self-isolating away from the College.
Anyone considering overseas travel in coming days should contact the Head of College, Nick, or Deputy Head of College, Richard, with details of travel plans and a conversation regarding plans for self-isolation on return.
Please contact a staff member if you have any questions, and keep abreast of developments through the news and our Facebook groups.
Thinking of you all in these are challenging times,
