MIT Otara

Otara is the main campus for Manukau Institute of Technology.  It is set in 12 tree-lined hectares, with large green open spaces and substantial gardens. You'll find us in the heart of South Auckland, with generous parking facilities and close by major public transport links.

Six of our seven faculties are located on the Otara campus where you can study programmes in Creative Arts, Nursing, Engineering and Trades, Consumer Services, Primary Industries and Education and Social Services.

Some of our facilities are open to the public, such as the hair salons, a garden nursery and our specialised training restaurant, Dine at MIT.

There is extensive parking at both North and South campus most of which is free of charge. 

Just off Otara campus is Auckland Council's Otara Pool and Leisure Centre (a recreation centre with heated swimming pools), a public library, an art gallery and the Otara town centre offering a range of shops and food outlets.
