Your student voice
Your student associations aim to make sure that you enjoy the best university experience possible. They provide leadership and represent all students, are student advocates to the university and wider community, and also help run events like orientation week.
They are run by Massey students, and are led by student executive groups who are elected every year. They are here to give you a helping hand and ensure your student voice is heard.
Student association services
Four of Massey's nine student associations are contracted to deliver selected services to you through a Service Level Agreement. They are fully accountable to students through the university for the Student Services Levy funds they spend, delivering on contract for service objectives and milestones through regular reports.
Services delivered include:
- Advocacy – student advocates are available to help you with class disputes, course-related problems, landlord difficulties and general advice. They also co-ordinate the class representative system working to address course delivery issues on behalf of your class.
- Financial advice and hardship fund – financial support is available to assist you with emergencies that affect your wellbeing. The associations co-ordinate applications for welfare and hardship grants.
- Clubs and societies – supporting academic, social, cultural and sports clubs and societies by providing administrative support and facilitating club activity grant funding. The list of student-run clubs to join is growing, and you can start a new one to meet your interests.
- Student to student communication – producing online and hard copy media, including your student magazine Massive and printed promotion posters. Online communication portals such as student association websites, facebook and Instagram. Student TV and radio including Radio Control 99.4FM and media production.
