Are You Prepared

Your first day is just around the corner and we can’t wait to see you on campus!

Starting at Unitec may seem daunting at first, but don’t worry. We’ve put together some helpful orientation pointers to get you through your first few weeks.

Your Pōwhiri

MaraeAs part of your orientation as a new student you are warmly welcomed to Unitec with a pōwhiri, or traditional Māori welcome ceremony - it's an important first step to joining the Unitec whānau.

After you’re officially part of the community, we'll grab a bite to eat, and sort you out with a survival pack filled with goodies.

Then we’ll take you on a campus tour so you know your way around. We'll end up in Student Central so you can sort any last minute enrolment details and pick-up your Student ID card.

More information on the Welcome Pōwhiri including the schedule of events can be found here »

Attend your first day of class

You'll get an email letting you know where your first day in class will be, but remember to check your timetable as to where you need to be on your first day. Sometimes the programme you'll be studying will run a welcome session, these help you connect with classmates and tell you everything you need know to succeed with study.

We'll email you an update about these sessions, so keep an eye on your inbox.
