Massey University’s Auckland campus is in the North Shore area of the city. The campus is across the harbour from central Auckland, 15km away. Formerly called the Albany campus, the Auckland campus spreads across three sites. These are the:
- East Precinct, off the Albany Expressway (State Highway 17)
- Ōtehā Rohe, off the Albany Highway
- Albany Village, off Kell Drive and State Highway 17.
Taking the city bus is quicker than driving from central Auckland because of very heavy traffic on Auckland Harbour Bridge at peak times. Once on campus, you can take the free shuttle bus to travel to and from all three sites.
