Tauranga campuses

It's an exciting time for the University of Waikato and the greater Bay of Plenty region with the development of the Tauranga CBD campus opening in 2019.

The University of Waikato has been active in the Bay of Plenty since the 1990s when we first formed an alliance with Toi Ohomai Institute of Technology.

In the Bay, we currently share our two main campuses - Windermere and the Bongard Centre - with Toi Ohomai.


Windermere Campus is set in 24 hectares of trees and gardens on the southern side of Tauranga city. Currently, it caters for students studying teaching, social work, psychology, social policy and biological sciences.

The campus features modern lecture theatres complete with the latest video conferencing and presentation technologies, purpose-built laboratories, a copy centre, health centre, aquatic centre and gym, childcare centres, cafes and a restaurant, a beauty salon and automotive services. Parking on campus is free and buses also stop nearby on Windermere Drive.

Location: 70 Windermere Drive, Windermere, Tauranga

The Bongard Centre sits in the heart of the city and caters for students studying law, business and computing. It features purpose-built lecture theatres and computer labs, has its own library, student support and a rooftop cafe. You'll have everything you need at the Bongard Centre, plus you'll have the advantage of being in the heart of the city.

Parking is available at low cost in a nearby student car park and a range of buses stop just down the road.

Location: 200 Cameron Road, Tauranga

Our students have access to a range of services, support and facilities at both the Windermere campus and the Bongard Centre.

Our new campus opening in 2019 in the heart of Tauranga city, will enhance our current range of qualifications available to students in the Bay.
