It is for both online and on-campus students and includes videos with tips from Massey students, easy to use academic resources, personalised study advice and opportunities to engage and ask questions online. 

An email will be sent to all new students in January inviting you to join the site.

Attend our welcome for all new online students to the Massey whānau. At this live event, which will later be available on demand, we will formally welcome you to your journey with Massey University and share information about the services you can access as a student. You will hear about life as an online student, the opportunities available over the coming weeks to meet other members of the distance students community and there will be a live chat function to ask any last minute questions.


On-Campus Orientation 

17 February to 19 February

On-campus orientation is our opportunity to welcome all new on-campus students to the Massey whānau.  Over these three days we will formally welcome you to your journey with Massey University and share information about services you can access as a student. You will get further information about student life, lots of opportunities to meet other new students and our Massey Guides will be there to answer any questions you might have.
