The Mauri Ora (Student Health and Counselling) team provide a range of services to help students manage their physical and mental wellbeing while at university.

Respectful behaviour

We expect all communication and interaction with our staff to be respectful, whether in person, over the phone, or virtually.

If you are enrolled as a student at the University, the Student Conduct Statute applies to you. If at any time your conduct amounts to, or may amount to, misconduct under the Student Conduct Statute, a formal process may be undertaken in accordance with that statute.
