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 - Manawatū
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 - Whanganui
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 Marae - Wairarapa
Whakaoriori Marae 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 marae is available for public use, and includes the Whānau Room which is used by staff and students.
