About Accommodation in New Zealand
Our Crew Accommodation Centres house CTC cadets from all over the world and make for a great living and social environment. CTC currently operates three accommodation complexes in New Zealand – Clearways, Lorne Street Apartments and Knox Street Apartments.
The atmosphere at the accommodation complexes is buzzing! Everyone is there for the same reason and the camaraderie between course groups is fantastic. Whilst there you will find that you are mixing with cadets from all around the world; those on either our European or New Zealand CTC Wings programmes, as well as trainees from our tailored airline programmes and the universities we work with.
As compared to University or other student accommodation, our facilities are some of the best equipped and modern student accommodation complexes in New Zealand. Our three accommodation centres are situated in the university town of Hamilton. A town with a very young feel, there are some great social and sporting facilities on hand and of course you have all that New Zealand has to offer right on your doorstep. One of the most beautiful countries to explore - a real bonus to be living somewhere so special and progressing your career at the same time. Who needs a gap year?!
Our purpose built accommodation facility Clearways is situated just eight kilometres from our Crew Training Centre, adjacent to Hamilton International Airport and a 15 minute drive from Hamilton City. The self-contained trainee accommodation facility accommodates a total of 128 trainees at any one time.
Clearways contains five buildings, each named after a famous classic airliner: Comet, Trident, Concorde, Britannia and Viscount. In each of the five buildings there is a central kitchen, laundry area, and lounge; plus, the complex is equipped with wireless internet access. Each building also has its own barbecue area and most cadet rooms have gradually developed small garden areas around them over the years. There are even a couple of “Clearways cats” who have adopted the training centre over the years! One of the buildings also contains a full-size gym that rivals any commercial gym facility. On site facilities also include a volleyball court and football pitch.
Lorne Street Apartments
There are five apartments at our Lorne Street accommodation complex with four rooms in each apartment. Each room has an ensuite, kitchenette and study area and each apartment has a communal living room, laundry and fully equipped kitchen. Cadets living at Lorne Street Apartments all have access to wireless internet and the complex offers on-site car parking with a high standard of security.
Lorne Street Apartments is situated a short 5 minute drive from the Hamilton CBD and is approximately 15 minutes from the Crew Training Centre
Knox Street Apartments
CTC has 42 studio apartments in this complex. Each apartment features a combined living, kitchenette and bedroom area with separate ensuite bathroom. They are all fully equipped and ready for you as a cadet to simply walk in with your suitcase and make it your home. Additionally, there are communal kitchen and laundry facilities for you to make use of as well as wireless internet access. The Knox Street complex is approximately 18 kms from the Training Centre at Hamilton Airport. The grounds are fully secure with automated pedestrian/car gate entry.
Knox Street Apartments is situated in the heart of the Hamilton CBD which means it’s just a short walk to a large selection of restaurants, bars, shopping complexes, and entertainment options.
