"Hei āwhina i ngā tauira ki te āwhina i a rātou anō - Helping students to help themselves"

Tātai Aronui is here to assist you throughout your studies by providing academic, personal and procedural support as well as referrals to other services on campus.  We provide scholarship info and application assistance, and can help applying for extensions and programme planning.

There are also opportunities for you to develop physically, spiritually, mentally and intellectually through Māori-focused events such as kapa haka, pōwhiri, kai tahi, hākinakina etc.  We can connect you to them all.

We are available from Monday to Friday and you are welcome to come in and talk to us about anything - your studies, life in general or just to have a kōrero. We are eager to meet you so don't be shy.  Your success and happiness is what we're about so nau mai, haere mai!
