Resting on the edge of a spectacular harbor, encircled by green, towering hills, Wellington is a stunning and compact city. Vibrant, exciting and cultured, the nation's capital combines the stimulation and sophistication of a big city with the quirkiness of a charming village. Extending just two kilometers in diameter, Wellington is a truly "walking city." Here you'll find a unique blend of national treasures, arts and culture, gastronomic delights, shopping sensations and scenic beauty, all conveniently located at the bottom of the North Island.
The university’s magnificent museum building heralds its presence in Wellington. Perched at the crest of Mount Cook alongside the National War Memorial and Carillon, the former National Art Gallery and Dominion Museum overlooks the stunning vista of the capital city and its harbor. Following an award-winning heritage restoration, this magnificent building acts as the university's front door to the capital city.
Massey University offers a wide range of extracurricular student activities available for all students, from the alpine club to fire-spinning to waterpolo. The Massey at Wellington Student's Association offers resources, clubs and activities to students. The international student support team organizes a trip to Queen Charlotte Sounds for dolphin watching and a Martinborough winery tour every semester.
