Welcome to Massey's original campus, with lovely heritage buildings and park-like grounds located near Palmerston North city.
The large campus is beautiful year-round with 11,500 different varieties of plants and trees in the form of manicured gardens, green fields, woodlands and bush. The Massey University grounds in Manawatū are listed as a New Zealand Botanical Garden.
The campus has a huge range of clubs and societies – so it’s easy to make friends and start new adventures. It boasts rugby and soccer fields along with the Sport and Rugby Institute, an award-winning recreation centre, an equestrian centre (some students bring their horses to university with them) and an all-weather Olympic-standard athletics track. There is four-star, affordable accommodation on campus and a free bus service to and from the city.
Massey University has carved out a reputation for being innovative and progressive against the triple objectives of excellence, relevance and national contribution. Massey's Manawatū campus is home for many of New Zealand's top researchers who have earned Massey an international reputation. One example is the prestigious Allan Wilson Centre for Molecular Ecology and Evolution which is a Centre of Research Excellence.
