Where Tauranga Campus

Orientation is an exciting time for you to get familiar with campus, make new friends, and get set up for when Trimester A classes start on 2 March. A programme full of activities, intro sessions and events will help you feel welcome and ready to begin your university journey.

Orientation 2020 at our Tauranga campus is the first in our new CBD building, and we've got loads of events on! Figure out where your classes are with a quick campus tour, learn how the library system works, grab a bite to eat from one of the many nearby cafes and eateries, or just chill out and relax!

We've created some resources to help you prepare for Orientation and get the most out of it:
