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.

Orientation Pōwhiri

As part of their welcome to the University of Auckland, new students will hear about meaning behind the Pōwhiri.
