About Us

A Modern Lifestyle In the Heart of Central Hastings

The Lime Tree is more than student accommodation- we offer a new, modern, lifestyle in Hawke’s Bay. The Lime Tree has a mix of spacious comfortable single and twin share rooms with separate well appointed clean bathrooms and open study areas. We’re student and resident focused.

Some students at The Lime Tree will be attending either the Eastern Institute of Technology (EIT) or the Air Hawke’s Bay Flight School. We also have some rooms available for young people on working holiday visas or relocating to Hawke’s Bay for work.


The Garden Rooms

Located along the inner garden courtyard, these rooms are popular with residents who enjoy the zen-like peacefulness a garden brings.

The Karamu Rooms

These rooms offer views along Karamu Road. At street level, they are popular among residents that thrive on activity.

The Smart Skylight Rooms

These rooms have smart skylights you can control with a remote and an App.  The block out blind shuts when you choose.  In winter they let the sun in, in summer they block the sun but allow a breeze and all year they only let the light in when you when you want it!

Study, work, make friends, make memories.

The Lime Tree is more than your home away from home!
