Abandoned Student Hostel

Blair Tennant Student Hostel in Palmy has been empty for a decade or so. Previously owned by Massey University, the site is part of a Treaty of Waitangi settlement claim and in the mean time The Ministry of Justice ‘looks after’ it. These photos are from before the fire which broke out in November 2015.

Inside the residential accommodation, if you could call it that, is the usual stuff – clothes, bongs, broken furniture and the odd roller skate. Graffiti is mainly tags, and the odd scrawled warning – ‘no dog shits’ – are homeless dogs living here too?

  1. I like the balcony and walkway sections it’s an interesting layout. Shame it’s a mess but it actually still has some nice features like the plants and trees growing, some of those should be saved if this place gets demolished…
