Social Hub

About 150 people attended the opening, including representatives from the University, industry and the community.

Green Star Rating

The $30 million Student Centre project, which has taken three years to complete, has seen the University’s Library updated and expanded.

Last year, it was awarded a prestigious 5 Green Star rating from the New Zealand Green Building Council, the first five-star project in the Waikato region. It also won the Best Use Of Glass Award in the Window Association of New Zealand’s Design Flair Awards held in June.

The 5 Green Star rating recognises the environmental and sustainable features of the Student Centre design which include photovoltaic panels, self-monitoring lighting and energy efficient heating systems.
