Open Day Volunteers

Come and join us for our Mānawa Mai | Open Day on Saturday 27 August!

We're looking for student volunteers to help the team for Mānawa Mai, our Open Day on Saturday 27 August 2022.

This important day gives future students a chance to see what the University of Auckland is all about. They’ll experience what it’s like to be part of the Waipapa Taumata Rau whānau and have the opportunity to explore our vibrant campus in the heart of Auckland. It'll be an action-packed day where they’ll be able to connect with staff and students while discovering the social side of university and all it has to offer. 

How can you get involved?

We're looking for a number of students to help us on the day in various roles. This is a great opportunity to bolster your extra-cirriculum experience, and help build an unforgettable Open Day experience for new students.

As a Koha for your commitment and support, we'll provide a catered lunch for all volunteers. Bonus - $100 Westfield voucher for all full-day volunteers and $50 for half-day volunteers.
