Open Day 2020

Open Day 2020

Open Day is the perfect chance to spend a day on campus, explore study options, chat to our staff and students, win cool prizes, and get a taste of student life.

  • Info Sessions
  • Entertainment
  • Tours
  • Competitions
  • Spot Prizes

Please note:

We expect that government restrictions on mass gatherings will be in place for some time, so the University of Waikato is currently working through options to deliver a virtual experience in place of Open Day 2020.

We will be announcing more information on this initiative as soon as we are able.
