The University of Waikato is set on a stunning 65 hectare campus in Hamilton, New Zealand’s fourth largest city. We also have a satellite campus in Tauranga. International students from more than 70 countries make up around 20% of the 12,500 student population at Waikato. We suggest that you read through all the sections of your journey to study at the University of Waikato. These sections are designed to equip you with the information you need ahead of your time in New Zealand. We also provide information about the university in some other languages.
