You can’t go wrong when you have the option to explore numerous national parks, immerse yourself in Maori culture, have access to world class surfing and skiing – and world class education, all in one university. If you are looking for a study abroad experience that is action packed inside and outside of the classroom, Massey University is the place for you. 

The Auckland campus is a compact and modern campus, architecturally designed in the Spanish mission style. Lecture facilities are state-of-the-art, and facilities are both spacious and contemporary. Classes are small, teaching is interactive, and the atmosphere is friendly and relaxed.  Auckland is an international city built around a stunning harbor. It is New Zealand's largest urban area with a diverse multi-cultural population and world-class features and facilities.

 

The Auckland Campus is part of the North Shore, which is just 20 minutes drive from the center of Auckland. The North Shore City region covers 120 km of coastline and includes more than 30 sandy swimming beaches. The area in which the campus is located has a wide range of amenities, numerous cafes, shopping centers, cinema complexes, art galleries, libraries, a Theatre of the Arts, and extensive leisure and sport facilities. A motorway links the North Shore with Auckland's CBD and the International Airport. City bus services are efficient, well developed and relatively inexpensive.

 

Massey University offers a wide range of extracurricular student activities available for all students, from basketball to boxing or surfing to cultural activities. Clubs Day, during the first week of the semester, is a great opportunity for students to peruse what’s offered, but there is also a list of Massey University Clubs. Massey also has excellent recreation center facilities available.
