Physical campus closure and library matters

Unitec's physical locations are currently closed (apart from the Te Puna Waiora Health Centre). 

You cannot return items during lockdown but don't worry as all items due back have been renewed

We have adjusted the library system so that all the books and other items currently on loan and due back during lockdown have been renewed until Mid May. We will extend loan periods again if lockdown is extended. 

Please contact us at library@unitec.ac.nz if you have any questions.

How to contact us during lockdown


Contact us for help and support via our Student Services phone line: 0800 10 75 10

This phone line is currently staffed during these hours:

These service hours will be reviewed from time to time depending on increase or decrease of demand and we will update this blog accordingly.
