The Nelson Boys College accommodation and bathroom facilities have been recently renovated. All accommodation options include shared bathrooms. Gender will be considered for room allocation and bathroom use. Please specify if you want accommodation as a couple. Towels and sheets are provided.

There are limited private rooms: book early to secure these. You will be notified by email if you have been allocated a private room. Refunds will be given accordingly, and the second-choice option booked.

Cubicles are separated by a hinged door, open at the top. Shared accommodation means being mindful of noise. Once in your room, observing silence will be necessary. If you want to continue socialising, please use Rutherford House or outside spaces.

Rutherford House will be the accommodation heart, with coffee/tea, Wed evening meal and the program to be held there. Other main meals and gathering on Thurs and Friday evenings will be at the Main Hall within a short walking distance. Access between the accommodation and main hall is flat.

Food catering onsite is vegetarian. The College chef has custom-designed a menu for our group. Efforts have been made for seasonal and organic, as available, with minimal packaging, waste or compost.

There is an outdoor swimming pool available for use.



Transport is offered by Nelson/Tasman IYTA Branch.


Please specify travel times if requiring transport. If transport is not required, please state.
