Class Representative System


  • The Accommodation Services Office assists and processes the applications to each of the University’s four Hamilton-based Halls of Residence: Bryant Hall, College Hall, Student Village and Orchard Park. Orchard Park is a series of cottages that offer self-catering facilities. The other Halls are largely fully-catered although they all have flats where self-catering accommodation is available. In addition, the Office also assists and processes applications for the University’s Tauranga-based accommodation: Durham Mews and Mayfair Court. Both of these facilities are self-catered accommodation.

Location of the University

  • The University of Waikato operates from two campuses, Hamilton, and Tauranga. Undergraduate degrees are also offered through a satellite location on the campus of Zhejiang University City College in Hangzhou.

    • Hamilton

    The main Hamilton campus is spread over 64 hectares of landscaped gardens and lakes, and includes extensive sporting and recreational areas. Originally farmland, the campus was designed by architect John Blake-Kelly in 1964. The open space landscaping contains extensive native plantings, including a fernery, centred around three artificial lakes, created by draining marshy paddocks.

    • Tauranga

    The University of Waikato previously shared two campuses with ToiOhomai Institute of Technology in Tauranga: Windmere and the Bongard Centre. In 2018, it was announced that the University would be moving all of their Tauranga operations to the Bongard Centre, with ToiOhomai conversely moving their Bongard students to the Windmere campus.[20] In 2019, construction on a new campus on Durham Street is expected to be completed.
