We welcome more than 4,400 international students from more than 100 countries each year. We also have a growing number of international students studying virtually through our world-class online and borderless programmes.
Massey has over 100 active international relationships and academic agreements with foreign universities to foster study abroad and student exchange opportunities for encouraging student mobility and diversity.
We pride ourselves on the relevance of our programmes, on our openness to students of diverse backgrounds spanning age, geographic location, educational background, ethnicity and culture, on the support we provide for students through our commitment as a signatory to the Education (Pastoral Care for International Students) Code of Practice 2016,and on the relationships we have built with our alumni worldwide.
Massey University is unique amongst New Zealand universities - it is the only multi-campus university delivering rigorous academic programmes in three separate North Island city centres.
Each campus provides full services to students including a library, cafeterias, recreation facilities, medical centre, learning support centre, university-managed accommodation, online visa renewal processing, chaplaincy services, and a team of international student support staff.
While Massey is a large, comprehensive university, the individual campuses have a strong community-feel, a study environment that encourages success, and a friendly, welcoming atmosphere. The academic programmes taught at each campus are complementary to the city and regional environment.
The Auckland (Albany) campus on the North Shore of Auckland, has approximately 7,000 students, and is commonly referred to as Massey's innovative campus. The Albany campus is New Zealand's most modern campus, built in a striking Spanish-mission style.
The Palmerston North (Manawatu) campus is Massey's original campus, and was established in 1927. The campus has a student population of approximately 9,000 and is set amongst beautiful park-like grounds, including 40 acres of working farmland.
The Wellington campus is located in the heart of New Zealand's capital city. Known as Massey's creative campus, Massey Wellington has around 4,000 students, and is home to New Zealand's oldest and most prestigious School of Design.
Where you live is an important decision to make when you're a student. We make sure your accommodation is complementary to your studies and university experience.
Our campuses in Auckland, Palmerston North and Wellington have great accommodation options. You can live in a hall of residence, an apartment or a studio unit. We also provide homestay accommodation for international students.
Halls of residence and apartments

Homestay accommodation is when you live with a local family in the family’s home. You become a member of the family and your new family support you as you start your university journey.
Private accommodation can include renting an apartment, house or unit, or renting a room in a hostel or flat, with or without flatmates. It's important you understand your rights as a tenant when choosing this type of accommodation.
