About Whitireia New Zealand

Whitireia New Zealand is a government owned and funded tertiary institute of technology, known for its high student success rate and culturally diverse student body. It has grown since its establishment in 1986 on the shores of Porirua Harbour, to become a 7,800 student operation with campuses in Auckland, Wellington, Kapiti and Porirua. Students consider the high academic quality of Whitireia programmes to be a point of difference in the region and the culture of the campus, represented by the support offered by tutors to be above all other educational providers in the greater Wellington area.

Campus information

Main Campus: Porirua

The Porirua Campus was established in 1986 and boasts one of New Zealand’s most beautiful sites for a tertiary institute. The Porirua campus houses extensive resources, from an award-winning library, health education facility, students services and student learning centres.

The Porirua campus is situated just 20 minutes from Wellington City.


Whitireia guarantees to arrange you Homestay accommodation if required. We strongly advise that you choose Homestays that Whitireia has approved.

Homestay is a great way to learn about New Zealand culture and host families are carefully chosen for you to stay with. Your family will provide you with a single bedroom, meals and clean bed linen and towels.

Living with a new family for the first time can be challenging for students and host families. It takes time and effort but living with a family is one of the best ways to experience a country and its culture. It will also help you with your English.
