Overview

Unitec Institute of Technology was established in 1976 as Carrington Technical Institute. In 1987, the institute was renamed as Carrington Polytechnic. The name change helped describe and classify their style of education. By then they had already grown considerably and by 1992 they purchased adjacent hospital land and buildings and the campus spread over 55 hectares.

In 1994, Carrington Polytechnic became the Unitec Institute of Technology. This change highlighted the "best of both worlds" found on campus - the mix of the best attributes of a university with those of a polytechnic, a mix they are still proud of today. In 2001, they opened a second campus in Henderson, West Auckland and in 2004 they became known as Unitec New Zealand.

In 2006, the Waitakere campus opened its new state-of-the-art learning centre and library followed by the arrival of  their North Shore campus in Takapuna in 2008. In 2011, they opened their Northern campus in Albany to offer North Shore and Rodney resident’s vocational training on their doorstep. Programs from the North Shore campus in Takapuna were transferred to this new location.

Student Life at Unitec Institute of Technology –

From their biggest campus in Mt Albert to the brand new Northern campus in Albany – Unitec’s four campuses are all quite different. All their campuses are constantly buzzing with students of all ages, nationalities and backgrounds – catching up with friends, hitting the books at the library, getting a caffeine fix at a nearby cafe or rushing off to their next lecture.

There’s always something going on too. A huge range of social events are organized by the USU Students’ Association at Unitec. The year starts with sounds in the sun, which is the biggest student orientation event in the country and ends with the massive end of year Pprty. In between there are lots of other concerts, film nights, gaming events, sporting events, free BBQs, parties, comedy nights and even a kids’ days out.
