A vibrant campus in the heart of Henderson

Our recently expanded Waitakere campus is the perfect place to study if you live or work out West.

Located at the very heart of the Henderson town centre redevelopment, it caters for up to 2500 students. Offering modern and flexible teaching spaces, the campus includes purpose-built computer and bioscience labs, as well as a hi-tech, 180-seat lecture theatre.

When you're ready for a break from your studies, there's a pleasant common room and kitchen facilities on site, and within just a few minutes' walk you'll find yourself in Henderson's bustling shopping centre, with its variety of cafes and restaurants.

A community centre for Waitakere City

Outside our Waitakere campus is a landscaped plaza, and next door a new public library. The library, a joint project between Unitec and Waitakere City Council, combines technology, art, architecture and design in a fantastic learning environment, for the enjoyment of both Unitec students and the people of Waitakere City.
