Marae and Student Hub

We are exploring the feasibility of a new marae and multi-purpose facility that would be located in the heart of the Hamilton campus. We envisage an innovative and inspirational new building that will enhance the campus and the everyday experiences of students and staff.

The new complex would provide for the following:

  • A new University marae with increased prominence, capability and community engagement
  • Social and informal learning spaces for students, including study and meeting spaces, shops and cafés
  • Spaces and facilities for hosting major events on campus, such as graduations, awards dinners, community functions and international conferences
  • New spaces for teaching and learning and executive leadership.

We are currently in the design phase for this major project, and a full business case and budget will be submitted to the University Council for its consideration, and hopefully approval, by the end of the year.
