Orientation programme guides

All New Zealand-based first-year undergraduate and postgraduate students will receive their Orientation programme guide in the post prior to Faculty Orientation Week. International students with a non-New Zealand addres will receive their programmes at their welcome.

UniGuides and campus tour

As a new student at the University of Auckland, it can be challenging to meet new friends, learn about campus resources and services, or find out where classes are located.

The UniGuide Programme is a free service designed to help make your first semester easier by connecting you with a student mentor who can show you the ropes.

You will meet your UniGuide at your Faculty Orientation Day and they will take you to your faculty sessions, show you around the campus and take you to your compulsory DELNA session.
