We’ll make getting around easy

There will be a free hop-on hop-off bus looping around campuses and some halls of residence.

Parents and whānau are more than welcome at all Open Day activities. They can also attend information sessions designed specifically for them.

Let us feed and entertain you

We’ll put on some free food to make sure you don’t go hungry. There will also be live entertainment throughout the day.
