Almost all teaching staff engage in research which attempts to advance the frontiers of knowledge and understanding, and around 5000 students are enrolled for postgraduate studies, 1200 of whom are undertaking doctorates.  The University has continued to improve its facilities, with a new information and student commons complex already complete on the City Campus; new teaching and research spaces at Tamaki Innovation Campus; and a new state-of-the-art home for the Business School recently completed.

Fall 2017 Participant
There was no meal plan at UniLodge, but they did have a kitchen and a grill for all the residents to use.

Fall 2017 Participant
I stayed in UniLodge-Beach. It was a bit small, but it works for just one person. It's clean and easy to maintain.

Fall 2017 Participant
Just travel and see as much as you can
