Orientation and onboarding

Nau mai, Haere mai and welcome new students.

Our orientations are a range of awesome events designed to give you the best possible start and welcome to MIT. From your pōwhiri/whakatau, to onboarding and tech-ready sessions, to meeting other new students and MIT staff, we're here to welcome you into the MIT family.

We strongly recommend that you attend orientation, as these events are here to help prepare you for your time at MIT and to make sure you're study ready for day one.

We look forward to welcoming you into the MIT family and being there for you throughout your study journey.

When’s the fun stuff and how do I stay up to date?

Ori-Fest is full of fun, free, activities that students can participate in and attend across our three main campuses. It happens in the first few weeks of the semester and is a great chance for you to see what's happening on campus and join in the celebrations.

You can also like and follow the Student Life Facebook and StudentLife.manukau Instagram page to stay up to date with the latest student news, activities and events happening on campus.
