Pacific Student Support

We believe in providing all students with equal opportunities and support that suits them. There are a range of specific Pacific Student support services available to all students ranging from study groups and session to divisional programme planning and assistance.


We provide a specific Pacifica floor at Bryant Hall for students who wish to live in an environment that is culturally supportive. Students can select this floor when applying for the halls of residence.

The Conch

The Conch is our dedicated Pacific student space, located on level zero of the Student Centre. It's a great place to come and study or relax between classes.
