Computer Facilities

Students have access to computer facilities at the Whakatāne campus and Tāmaki Makaurau (Auckland) site. Students will be assigned a username and password for eWānanga LMS by their prgoramme administrator so they can access online courses, resources and related course material.

The software needed to complete assignments and course-work is found on all workstations. Printers are available (students should supply their own paper).

Students, on degree programmes in particular, find having a laptop to be extremely beneficial to their studies.  Refurbished laptops are also available at a discount price.

Academic Administration and Enrolment Team

It doesn’t matter if you are a prospective student and don’t know where to start, or a current student needing advice, staff are available to help. The Academic Administration and Enrolment team can guide you through:
  • What to study
  • How to enrol
  • How to pay for your study

Once you are enrolled, the team can help if you have questions about:

  • Paying fees
  • Student ID cards
  • Withdrawal or change of course
  • Academic transcripts or results
  • Graduation queries

Transport and Parking

Awanuiārangi provides parking for students at our campus and sites. As a student you could also be eligible for discounted travel on shuttle buses and public transport.

Free parking permits for students to park at our Whakatāne campus are available from our reception.
