Resources and Support

Student Learning

Student Learning is an academic skills development service within the Centre for Tertiary Teaching and Learning. We provide a free, confidential academic skills development service for all students at the University, from undergraduate, to postgraduate, to higher degree.

The Student Learning offices are currently located in Level 1 of the Student Centre (M.1.04). Student Learning tutors help students to develop and improve their tertiary academic literacy and numeracy skills to become successful, self-directed learners.

Tauranga Student Learning Service

The University makes provision for its Tauranga students to have access to learning skills development advice. There is information on the Student Learning website about how Tauranga students can get assistance.

The University of Waikato Library

The Library offers a wide range of services, resources and guides and the expert staff can help you with many aspects of your assessment tasks. Check out the Library’s online and face-to-face tutorials, subject guides and expert advice, and get the most out of your studies. The Library also offers a 30-minute library orientation tour at the start of each semester.

Guides and Tours

Library guides cover general and subject-specific topics. General guides include the assignment process (from determining the assignment requirements to evaluating your processes), referencing and copyright guidelines.

Referencing Guide

Referencing is an important feature of academic writing, and we know it’s one that can be confusing at times. That’s why the Library has put together a collection of resources to help you acknowledge your sources properly.


The Library tutorials will help you gain the research and computing skills required at a tertiary level. Tutorials are offered throughout the semester and bookings may be made online. A self-paced online tutorial is available through the Library website.

Student Services

Student Services provide a central service for student welfare, support and accommodation, and policies, information, advice and services relating to student administration and academic matters.
