Our students say Waikato has the most beautiful campus in the country. All our first-class facilities are in one location, building a strong sense of community. You'll find Waikato has a laid-back and easy atmosphere and in 2014, the campus was declared smoke free. Students meet for coffee by the lakes, chill out on the lawns or play touch rugby on the fields. 93% of our students are satisifed with their exprience at Waikato (International Student Barometer Survey 2017).
