Otago Polytechnic Auckland International Campus is located in a modern building in central Auckland. Our campus is at 350 Queen Street, right in the heart of the main shopping and business area. We have excellent facilities, including computer labs, a floor dedicated to quiet study and learning support, free wifi, and a student lounge where you can socialise and relax with friends between classes.
The top floor of our campus is a great place to study and get help with your courses. There are always Peer Tutors on hand here as well as a Learning Support Advisor to help you with your research and assignments. The floor contains an Academic Resource Centre with textbooks and resources for you to use. If you can’t find what you’re looking for, The Auckland City Library is just across the road and has excellent, free research and borrowing services. Our students also have full access to our online library service as well as a free delivery service for textbooks sent from our Dunedin campus’ main Robertson Library. Free wifi is available throughout the campus and we have a number of computer labs.
Our Student Success Team is here to help you with any issues that arise during your study. You can talk to this team about any academic or personal struggles. Student Success organises your Orientation and Graduation as well as a number of other fun events every study block. They also facilitate student forums and focus groups where students have the opportunity to give feedback about their experiences and help us improve our services.
The Employability team provides expert guidance and a friendly ear to help you make informed career decisions. They take a holistic approach to career guidance, based on your own personal values, goals, and interests. Reflecting on what is important to you will help you decide on the right next step for you. The team also provides a schedule of workshops each study block and facilitates networking opportunities both on and off campus.
The Kiwi Experience
We know your international student experience is about more than just study. Our diverse student body means you have the opportunity to make friends from all over the world during your time with us. Our Student Hub on Level 1 is a great place to socialise between classes. This space is fully equipped with table tennis, a pool table, and a kitchen. It’s the ultimate place for you to relax and spend time with friends. Many events take place in this space from cultural celebrations to industry forums. We also organise trips off campus allowing you to get the true Kiwi Experience. These include hikes and visits to the Auckland Zoo and aquarium.
Step outside onto Queen Street and you have access to a range of great shops, restaurants, and theatres. Queen Street is at the centre of the city’s public transport network, with easy access to buses and trains to all parts of the city.
