An office block in central Wellington will be turned into a new hall of residence for Victoria University students.

"Students coming to Victoria University from throughout the country and overseas are looking for quality accommodation," Victoria University Vice-Chancellor Professor Pat Walsh said.

"Alongside the recent introduction of Boulcott Street Hall and Joan Stevens Hall on the Terrace, we are ensuring this need continues to be met."

The yet-to-be-named 390 bed hall will be open for the 2015 academic year.

The building at 175 The Terrace, is owned by Maurice Clark of Cheops Holdings.

Victoria University will lease the premises.

It will be soon be refurbished by McKee-Fehl Constructors.

Students will be able to apply for the hall online later this year.
