If you are an international student, it is also essential that you:
If you receive an Offer of Place and want to accept, you need to log in to the student portal to complete the online acceptance process, course selection, and acceptance of the Offer of Enrolment to confirm your place at Massey.
StudyLink helps students make informed choices about student finance, and how to apply and manage their finance online.
As a full-time domestic student you may qualify for student finance or a student allowance to meet your living costs as well.
If you plan to live on campus while you study with Massey, it's important you register for accommodation early.
Use the Student Accommodation Portal to register for accommodation at the campus you will be studying at.
You can apply for your student ID card online before you arrive on campus.
Activating single sign-on is a very quick way to make your life at Massey a lot easier.
It means that you can use your network password to log into all Massey's online systems: the student portal, Stream and MyHub.
It also means that if you forget your network password, you can reset it yourself. If you don't activate single sign-on and your forget your password, you'll have to call the help centre.
It is just a matter of days before you arrive! We recommend you:
The Massey Uni app brings you essential info while you are on the move. Its designed for both distance and on-campus students at Massey University.
It is a good idea to read the Getting Started section in Stream, Massey's online learning centre. The information on Getting Started is available approximately four weeks before lectures start and will help you prepare for your first semester.
Your first month is an important time to set up your Massey student experience. It will be a busy few weeks, so we've put together some useful information to help you familiarise yourself with the campus and learn about the student services.
Before you arrive, it's a good idea to familiarise yourself with the campus you will be studying at.
Timetabling is where you plan your study schedule for the semester. You will find all the information and help in your student portal.
College of Creative Arts students will find their timetable information in Stream
Each campus is running a how-to session on timetabling during orientation. We highly recommend you attend a session.
Being organised and prepared will help you succeed with distance study. If there’s printed distance learning material, it will normally be sent to you the week preceding the semester start (in February for semester one, July for semester two and November for summer school). International dispatch will be by airmail. Find out more about preparing for distance study on the OWLL website.
