HAMILTON CITY CAMPUS
The Rotokauri Campus is set on a 56 hectare site about 10 minutes drive north of the central city. It has some of the best purpose built training facilities in New Zealand, including fully equipped trades workshops, animal handling, veterinary surgery, specialist training restaurant and kitchens, and sport science labs.
At the heart of it all is the social buzz of the Rotokauri Hub, providing students with advanced technical equipment, computers, café, library, video conference room, chill-out spaces, health centre and other support services. The Base, Hamilton's newest and largest shopping complex, is nearby and its many cafes and shops have become a favourite student destination.
You'll never go hungry at Wintec! Both the City and Rotokauri campuses have excellent cafés serving a tempting array of hot and cold food and espresso coffee. In the student areas of all our campuses there are microwaves, hot water and snack vending machines.
