Spaces on campus for taking an online exam

Book a space on campus if you need a computer or Wi-Fi access, or want a guaranteed quiet space to take your exam.

Reminder: Most exams this semester are online and students can take their exam from anywhere. There are a few exceptions, which will be communicated by your lecturer. 

The University has set aside different spaces that can be booked ahead of time for students to take their examinations. These spaces will be monitored, but there will be no invigilators present.

Non-bookable spaces throughout the University will be available as usual, on a first come, first -served basis, depending on library and campus opening hours. You are not required to book a space, or come to campus, if you prefer to take your exam elsewhere. 


Depending on your needs, we have an allocated space for you at City, Tai Tonga, Epsom and Tai Tokerau* campuses. Check out the different options below and reserve your space in advance for your allotted exam time. 

Space with a computer

If you need a space with a computer, here is what you can expect: 

  • A desk with a standard desktop computer (no specialist software), keyboard and mouse 
  • Desk space 
  • A quiet space to sit your exam 

Space with a power outlet

If you are bringing your own device and need a space with a power outlet, here is what you can expect: 

  • A desk with a local power outlet to charge your computer or laptop, or other personal devices, as needed
  • A quiet space to sit your exam
