The University of Waikato Hamilton campus is the university’s main campus. It provides a vibrant student atmosphere and safe environment for students to live, study and socialise. The Village Green is the hub of student life. It sits alongside one of three lakes on campus and is surrounded by cafes and eateries. The campus covers 65 hectares of beautiful park-life grounds and lakes and is fully equipped with the following facilities:

  • On-campus accommodation (residential halls and colleges)
  • Student Centre housing the main library, cafe, computers and study rooms
  • Recreation facilities – gym, tennis courts, squash courts, endless pool, outdoor pool
  • Post Office
  • Pharmacy
  • Banks and ATM facilities
  • Medical Centre
  • Counselling and disability support
  • Chapel (multi-faith) and prayer spaces
  • Stationery and book shop.
We take student safety seriously. Students can request a ‘safe walk’ escort to walk them to their car or residential hall. The main paths through campus are marked by blue stickers on the lamp posts and blue light phones for contacting security staff. The paths are well lit and monitored by security cameras.
