Updated 13 September 2021

Our Dunedin and Cromwell campus buildings are open to the public again (with Covid-19 restrictions in place) - we're looking forward to seeing you!

Members of the public will need to register their visit by first reporting to the main customer service area of campus (at both campuses).

Our Auckland International Campus remains closed. Kia kaha Auckland!  


If you are planning to visit either of our campuses, please read the Alert Level 2 Visitor Guidelines first. We really appreciate you following these to help keep our community safe. 

Please ensure you scan into campus using the QR code (or manual sign in sheet). 

Level 2 Visitor Guidelines 


If you're studying with us, please continue to check your emails and our Covid-19 Information for Learners webpage for information about returning to campus from Monday 13 September. 

We know these alert levels may feel tougher than last time around and returning to campus may cause some concern and anxiety - this is completely normal. 

Your health and wellbeing remains our top priority and support is available so please reach out if you need to.
