Māori and Pacific students

Find out about the mentoring and support services for Māori and Pasifika students on campus.


Āwhina is the on-campus whānau for Māori students to work together to share knowledge, achieve academic success, and build strong communities and leaders.

Underpinning Āwhina's successes is the inclusive whānau environment where high expectations, aspirations and achievements, collective success and reciprocity are normalised.

Pasifika Student Success team

The Pasifika Student Success team can help all Pasifika students navigate their transition into tertiary study and their journey at the University.

They foster Pasifika learning and teaching communities in an environment that is welcoming, safe, and focused on academic excellence, personal growth, and wellbeing.
