Getting started at university

Welcome to Massey!  We hope that you enjoy your time with us.  Starting university and settling in to study routines can take a little bit of time.  It is important that you take the time early in the semester to ensure you are all set up and have good study routines in place.   This section gives you a few hints and tips about things you can do before joining us, as well as things you can do in your first few weeks of study.  

Any questions or if you are not sure of anything Student Success Advisers are available on each campus to answer your questions.
