Tāmaki Makaurau (Auckland)

Building 1, 19 Lambie Drive, Manukau

Our new Tāmaki Makaurau campus is taking shape. Situated at the heart of South Auckland, Manukau is home to the largest Polynesian community in the world. Our students are at the
centre of a vibrant cosmopolitan centre, surrounded by plenty of retail shops and cafés. Bus stops can be found outside the popular Westfield Manukau shopping centre, and the train station is only a short stroll away.

Manukau City is just 20 minutes from Auckland’s central business district, and this newest
campus retains our focus on building success and academic achievement not just for Māori, but for all cultures.

Our zero-fees foundation and bridging programmes are a popular first rung on the academic ladder, preparing students to move on to higher learning options ranging from undergraduate degrees to Doctoral studies. Programmes are delivered in a variety of ways, including full-time day programmes, evening classes and weekend noho wānanga.

Te Tai Tokerau (Northland)

12a Murdoch Crescent, Raumanga Heights, Whangarei

Our Northland site delivers marae-based and block/noho courses at Certificate, Diploma and Degree level. The post-graduate area of study to PhD level continues to grow strongly. Further degree programmes are planned in the fields of Kaitiakitanga/Environment Studies and Education (Teaching).

Te Whare Wānanga o Awanuiārangi collaborates with Rūnanga and a range of providers in Northland to meet the needs and aspirations of our communities. Classroom space has expanded to meet increased demand, and a video-conferencing unit and computer suite have been installed.

A key element in the success of our programmes is the quality of our talented teaching staff in Northland, most of whom whakapapa to Ngāpuhi. This aligns with the vision of Te Rūnanga ā Iwi o Ngāpuhi – ka tū tika ai Te Whare Tapu o Ngāpuhi.

Whakatāne Campus
13 Domain Road, Whakatāne

Innovation, advanced technology and cultural design elements are features of a new campus built by Te Whare Wānanga o Awanuiārangi to help transform educational outcomes for Māori.

The new facilities were opened in December 2012 in Whakatāne, headquarters for the institution’s educational activities throughout Aotearoa and internationally. The complex features the high-tech Mark Laws Media Centre, teaching suites and lecture theatres with advanced video conferencing facilities that will connect students, lecturers and their peers nationally and worldwide.

Through its investment in high-speed fibre, Awanuiārangi is one of the most technologically connected institutions in the country, which allows it to explore new ways of engagement in higher education. In conjunction with the Mark Laws Media Centre, this has expanded capacity and capability to continue developing distance and online learning. The development phase includes implementing new research into the pedagogy behind online delivery.

The new campus includes a Noho Centre, built to support the institution’s noho wānanga (immersion learning) approach, which enables 24-hour learning within a tikanga Māori (Māori cultural) environment. The flagship building is the Sir Hirini Moko Mead Library, which includes special collections, modern student commons and study areas. There is also an executive suite, boardroom and offices.
