I'm a PhD student (geothermal energy/geology) - starting August 2023 who is New Zealand based but lives outside of Auckland (Rotorua). I'm responsible, tidy, quiet and respect other people's spaces. I'm a homeowner myself so I understand the need for others to respect your home.
I enjoy a nice interesting chat now and again, but I also appreciate my own space. I will also have my own office on the city UoA campus and will probably spend quite a bit if time out of Auckland, so I should should be a very low impact homestay student.
