Re-Orientation is an important part of the new student experience, so make sure you’re on campus from Tuesday 3 July to make the most of it.
|Organise your transport to campus|
As a Waikato student with a valid Student ID card, you’re entitled to a subsidised BUSIT! card which will give you 30% off all bus routes in Hamilton, plus many regional routes. Buy your BUSIT! card for just $5 from the Transport Centre on the corner of Bryce and Anglesea Streets, or from your bus driver. The University of Waikato also offers a heavily subsidised bus service between our Hamilton Campus and many outer-regions through the Te Ara ki Angitū: Pathways to Excellence programme.
Parking charges apply on the Hamilton Campus Monday–Friday, 8.30am - 4.30pm (except public holidays). Find out more on charges and how to pay.
