Pacific Student Associations

The University of Waikato is home to 14 Pacific student associations. Whether you are looking for a place to learn more about Pacific culture or language, to find others studying in your field or to meet more parents who are studying, we have an association for you. Each association is a place where students can find academic encouragement, peer networks, and cultural and social activities. Together we celebrate 9 Pacific Language Weeks and various Pacific Independence Days.

If you would like to join one of our Pacific student associations, contact them by email via the links below or visit the Waikato Student Union website.
