Manukau Institute of Technology:
Manukau: A city within the city of Auckland
Manukau City is one of the largest, fastest growing and yet one of the youngest cities in New Zealand.
Our city is unique in its rapid growth, diverse multicultural society, ready access to transport links involving road, rail and air, extensive 320 kilometre coastline, and its ability to attract industrial and commercial development.
Manukau's beautiful rural character is still very evident, with two thirds of the area still in agricultural use. The link with urban areas provides an interesting contrast that is very special to Manukau. Across all of our territory, Manukau is endowed with a vast array of parks, playgrounds, marine facilities, sports fields, libraries, recreation and cultural centres, swimming pools and commercial recreational opportunities.
Manukau City facts
Manukau dominates the southern part of the Auckland region with an area of over 500 square kilometres (55,200 ha). The territory of Manukau stretches from the edge of the Auckland isthmus in the north of the Hunua Ranges and Papakura District in the south.
A growing population
Manukau is the only major city in New Zealand with a growing population, and is the third largest local authority after Auckland and Christchurch. The population for Manukau is approximately 255,000 people. This total increases by 4,000 to 5,000 annually.
A multicultural city
Manukau is a large and active multicultural community. While the bulk of our people are of European descent, Maori make up 16% of the population with people of Pacific Island origin another 20%. Manukau has a burgeoning Asian population too.
That's just a little about what makes our region special. If there's anything more you'd like to know, please feel free to contact us.
Our campus environment, just 20 minutes drive from downtown Auckland, is set in 12 tree-lined hectares, with large green open spaces and substantial gardens. Parking is generous compared to other institutions, and we are close to major public transport routes.
There's always plenty going on around campus. Whether it's an exhibition from the arts students, a tasting at our catering school, or the famous weekend markets in our carpark, you'll find life is constantly surprising and stimulating. There's always a good coffee close by, too.
Many of our buildings are new and attractively designed to harmonise with the Historic Places Trust listed building we own, and access for students with disabilities is very good, especially in our new wings.
Nearby facilities include a free heated swimming pool, a new recreation centre, a public library and a small shopping centre.
