Transport and Parking

Most Unitec buildings are wheelchair accessible by ramp or lift, and have an accessible toilet relatively close by. If you do find yourself enrolled in a class without good access, we will try our best to make the necessary modifications.

To help you get across Mt Albert campus, a Unitec shuttle bus (registration XY6637) has been fitted with a hoist to transport staff or students in a wheelchair.

Designated parking spaces are also available around Mt Albert campus and you can get a parking map from the Disability Liaison Office. Please remember to display your mobility parking permit at all times to avoid being towed. Mobility parking permits are available from New Zealand CCS Disability Action Auckland, phone +64 9 625 9378.

At Waitakere campus, there are two mobility car spaces (180 mins) in Waitakere Lane off Ratanui Street outside Course Information Bldg 510. There are two mobility spaces on each level for Unitec staff and students in the Unitec carpark entrance via Trading Pl. The Auckland Transport website has detailed information on parking including maps indicating Mobility parking.

Study rooms

At the Mt Albert campus, one study rooms and two computer labs are available for use by students with disabilities during the semester. These study rooms are located at the Disability Liaison Centre.
