Massey University Palmerston North Campus

Palmerston North is the seventh largest city in New Zealand. It has the wealth of facilities you would expect to find in a major city – yet it is compact, friendly and accessible.

Palmerston North is a young person’s city with affordable accommodation, great bars, plentiful cafés and restaurants, a multiplex cinema, live theatre and music, indoor/outdoor swimming pools, shopping, an airport and much more.

Palmerston North’s central North Island location is conveniently close to west coast beaches, and within easy driving distance to the Hawke’s Bay wine region, skiing and snowboarding at Mt. Ruapehu, and New Zealand’s capital city, Wellington.

More than 80,000 people live in Palmerston North and a third of them are aged between 15 to 30 years. The Palmerston North community supports learning and enjoys an easy relationship with Massey’s large student population.
