3 A warm welcome to the University of Auckland I welcome you to the University of Auckland. It is important to us that you get the greatest possible value out of your University experience, both in your studies and in student life outside the classroom. We look forward to your contribution to the life of our very international University, bringing your insights and experience to our University community. This publication aims to help you make that contribution and to ensure you have an exciting and fulfilling time at the University. It provides you with a guide to services and facilities offered to international students by the University and the wider community. I wish you every success at the University of Auckland!
