The Student Health Service: Hauora Ākonga
Welcome! Nāu mai! Ko tā mātou he whakaratonga hauora ki te hunga akonga kua whakaurua ki Te Whare Wananga.
Student Health is here to support our students with any health concerns or questions you may have. We strive to deal with any concerns or questions quickly and discreetly to ensure we are a service you trust and utilise while studying here at Waikato.
Our services acknowledge the mana whenua of Kīngi Tuheitia and te whānau Kāhui Āriki. Built upon the whenua of Ngāti Wairere, Student Health’s culturally diverse team of experts embody Tā Mason Durie's Te Whare Tapa Wha model of practice. Our intention is for an integrated service were ngā taha hīnengaro, wairua, tīnana and whānau can be supported and enhanced for tauira during their studies.
We have a range of services available to students on both campuses. For more information about Tauranga Student Health Services, click here.
