Being part of the University of Waikato community is about developing a set of skills that will equip you for a career and about making great memories and life-long friendships.
At the University of Waikato, we offer a diverse and supportive network of student services that you can access as a Pacific student. We are committed to providing and enhancing Pacific student success here at Waikato. But it's not all about classroom learning – we also want you to have an enjoyable time in a supportive environment where you can learn and participate in cultural activities and meet the rest of our Waikato Pacific family!
One of the best places to see what is going on and keep connected is the Pacific at Waikato Facebook page where events and news are updated by our community members.
