Auckland is an international city with a population of over one million people. It is built around a stunning harbour with a bridge connecting the North Shore to the city centre. It is New Zealand's largest urban area with a diverse multi-cultural population and world-class features and facilities. Massey University's Auckland campus, located at Albany, is part of the North Shore and is usually just a 20 minute drive from the centre of Auckland.
Within walking distance of the campus is a large shopping centre where students can shop and browse, and just down the road is the Albany village with its traditional shops. The campus is surrounded by a wide range of amenities, including numerous cafés, shopping centres, cinema complexes, art galleries, libraries, a performing arts facility, and extensive leisure and sport facilities including the North Harbour Sports Stadium.
The North Shore city region covers 120km of coastline and includes more than 30 sandy swimming beaches. Part of the North Shore's appeal is that it is just a short drive from the city lights and downtown lifestyle of central Auckland, yet it has a real community feel and beachside character.
North Shore city is served by motorway links to Auckland and the International Airport as well as to major rail and ferry terminals. City bus services are efficient, well developed and relatively inexpensive.
