Massey University

Massey – Palmerston North

Massey University’s Manawatu campus is one of the best places in the country to experience the real student lifestyle. Nearly half the city’s population is under 25, making it the perfect place for learning and living. The Massey campus has two locations: Turitea – renowned for its beautiful park-like setting of trees and gardens; and Hokowhitu – on the city-side of the Manawatu River, near the lagoon.

Turitea has undergone an extensive facelift in recent years and is now a hub of student activity. With a new student centre, food hall and shops, Massey is committed to meeting the needs of a new generation of students.

Massey University has carved out a reputation for being innovative and progressive, with world-class facilities and internationally recognised courses. We’ve got the best gym in town, the Institute of Sport and Rugby, an equestrian centre (that’s right you can even bring your horse) a community athletics track and affordable four-star student accommodation right in the middle of campus. Our fantastic facilities coupled with a myriad of clubs and societies make Massey University, Palmerston North, the destination of choice for fitness fiends, social butterflies and enquiring minds alike.
