Campus Transformation

We are currently rebuilding our campus around a vibrant, modern and fit for purpose education hub at the southern end of the site.

The rebuild project will take approximately eight years to complete and will touch every part of our daily life on campus. The new facilities will be state of the art, flexible and offer our teachers and learners a variety of spaces to live, work and learn.

The first stage of the project has been the re-build of the student hub 'Te Puna' and the development of a new Trades, Engineering and Construction facility at our Mt. Albert campus.

Te Puna Delay Opening

The building work in Te Puna is on track to be completed by Sunday 23 July, and we are now waiting for the final green light so we can open this space up to you. There has however been a slight delay in the certification that has to be issued, meaning we are unable to open the building to students on Monday 24 July as planned.

We are now focused on making sure this delay has minimal impact as we are committed to providing a positive experience.

Need to know:

  • Student Experience staff will continue to operate out of Buildings 28 and 30
  • The student kitchen area will remain in the existing Hub building

Below are a few questions and answers to guide you in the right direction:

When will it open?

Te Puna now has now been rescheduled to open within the next two weeks. We will be updating this answer on Monday 24 July.

Why is the Te Puna opening delayed?

We have had a delay with the timing of our final compliance. This is needed to clear the building for public use and therefore impacts on our planned open date.

Will my timetable be affected?

Unforunately there are a number of classes that have been impacted. There are four rooms affected, and ONLY THE LOCATION WILL CHANGE.

These rooms have temporary locations assigned until Te Puna opens. These room and their temporary new rooms are below:

Where can I access the Library?

The Library will operate a pop up service room the Building 110 Issues Desk. There will be staff members to retrieve books from the library collection area that has been moved inside Te Puna. Library staff will still be available at the Waitākere and B1 Libraries, and the service there will be unaffected. Students can continue to use all the electronic Library resources.

Where can I buy food and drink?

The Refuel container café will be located outside Building 110 until 15 August. There is also convenience food located from Unimart inside B112.
