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, Peachgrove Studios 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?!
