Supporting campus developments

The Pā

The University of Waikato is building an innovative and versatile new facility, the Pā, which will transform the on-campus experience for students, staff, visitors and the broader community.

It will provide a new main entrance to the Hamilton campus, a student hub and a new University marae.

The Pā is a reference to the concept of community and location. Situated on Hillcrest Road, the design of the Pā incorporates input from students, staff and the community, and will create a welcoming and vibrant core facility on the Hamilton campus.

Gallagher Academy of Performing Arts extension

The University is adding a much-needed extension to its award-winning performance arts building - the Gallagher Academy of Performing Arts.

Originally opened in 2001, the Academy is a purpose-built arts building and is regarded as a top facility for teaching and performance, and is available to local, national and international groups and artists to use for practices, concerts and performances.

A proposed extension will include a new art gallery space allowing for larger installations, and additional music practice rooms with the appropriate acoustics, lighting, outlook and arrangements necessary for students to learn and practice in.
