To promote kaupapa Māori as a foundation for success, UCOL's Palmerston North, Whanganui and Wairarapa campuses have whānau rooms available for use. These facilities are available for all UCOL students and staff to use.
Te Hiringa I Te Mahara is located just off the central Atrium. With students popping in and out, the Whānau Room is the place to grab a cuppa, share kai, kōrero and join in on waiata practise.
Te Huihuinga can be found just outside the UCOL atrium in Whanganui and is a supportive hub for our students, with easy access to the learning and library services.
Whakaoriori Wharenui at UCOL Wairarapa acknowledges the significant Māori influence within the region and we work closely with Rangitāne o Wairarapa and Ngāti Kahungunu ki Wairarapa. The Wharenui is available for public use, and includes the Whānau Room which is used by staff and students.
