Auckland University of Technology

In 2005 the University of Auckland and the Auckland University of Technology (AUT), recognising the benefits of a differentiated system of tertiary education, established a forum to recognise the complementary nature of their missions and values.

The two institutions meet when necessary to promote, co-ordinate and manage the various administrative and academic opportunities for co-operation that arise from time to time.

In 2009 the University of Auckland, AUT University and Auckland City Council recognising their unique positioning, formally recognised Auckland's Learning Quarter and its potential as a world-class centre for education, research and commercialisation. Covering 63 hectares, the Learning Quarter has New Zealand's largest concentration of students, researchers, teachers, innovators and creators.

The Learning Quarter Plan expresses the partners' vision and outlines how they will work together to help drive the area's economic, social, cultural and development over the next ten years.
