Victoria University of Wellington has three campuses in Wellington City, all within walking distance of each other. Each campus has a distinct feel.

Kelburn campus is the central hub of the University. It is home to the University’s main services and facilities. Perched on a hill above the city, it has incredible views and a lively student atmosphere. You will find a mix of old and new—the new state-of-the-art Biological Sciences building, Te Toki a Rata, is just a short walk away from the University’s oldest building, the Hunter Building, built in 1906.

Pipitea campus is in the heart of Wellington’s government and central business district. You can study at the Business school or in one New Zealand’s best law schools just across the road from Parliament, the Wellington High Court, and District Court.

Te Aro campus is in the lively Cuba St district and is home to the University’s School of Architecture and Design. It has specially designed facilities, including collaborative studio spaces, high-tech 3D printers, and New Zealand’s largest robotic arm.
Victoria University of Wellington has excellent facilities for students including a purpose built building on the Kelburn campus dedicated to student study spaces, retail and social areas.
At the University, you can immerse yourself in the New Zealand culture by joining one of over 100 social, sporting and cultural clubs and societies and a number of extra-curricular programmes that will push you both personally and professionally.
