Getting around our campuses
Getting around our campuses can be a bit daunting at first. Here you’ll find the tips you need to easily locate your classes and get around our campuses.
University buildings are given a code number which identifies them. Many buildings also have names, so you might hear people talking about "HSB" (the Human Sciences Building) or "Commerce A".
Campus maps are the best tool for finding a building using its code number, or for finding which building a particular service is in.
Alternatively, you can pick up a hard copy map from the student information centres.
The maps have a key which lists the services you might need, alongside the number of the building where that service is located. Simply find the service listed (eg, Admission and Enrolment), check the building number printed beside it (eg, 105), and then look for building 105 on the map.
When you search for classes on Student Services Online, you will see the location of each class listed beside the class number. All classes you are enrolled in for the selected semester will appear, giving the appropriate campus with the latest room allocation.
To check the class locations, visit Student Services Online.
The campus map for the City Campus has a list of lecture theatre locations underneath the map. Browse this list, looking at the letters given to the right of the building name - these are the codes for the lecture theatres in that building.
As an example: if your class is in CAG 015, check the lecture theatre list under "Lecture Theatres" on the map. (CAG) is the code given next to the building Commerce A. Your class is therefore in Room 015 of the Commerce A building. Lecture theatres are usually clearly signposted when you manage to find the correct building.
Don't be afraid to ask fellow students or staff members for help if you get lost. Staff at the student information centres can direct you to where you need to go, and give you a campus map. For more information, visit or contact the student information centres.
The Tāmaki Innovation Campus shuttle bus provides transport from the city to the Tāmaki Innovation Campus at regular intervals during weekdays. Trains also run from Britomart to Glen Innes (the Glen Innes station is within walking distance of the Tāmaki Innovation Campus) on a regular basis.

MAXX, Auckland's online transport information service, provides timetables and journey planners that can help you get from home to campus, or from one campus to another, using public transport.
