The Albany Campus
The Albany campus is part of North Shore city in Auckland. Within walking distance of the campus is a large Westgate shopping centre where delegates can shop and browse, and just down the road is the Albany village with its traditional shops. On the campus there is a pharmacy, a travel agency, a book shop, a pub and several eateries. The campus is surrounded by a wide range of amenities, including numerous cafés, shopping centres, cinema complexes, and extensive leisure and sport facilities including the North Harbour Sports Stadium.
The North Shore city region covers 120km of coastline and includes more than 30 sandy swimming beaches. Part of the North Shore's appeal is that it is not too far from the city lights and downtown lifestyle of central Auckland, yet it has a real community feel and beachside character.
North Shore city is served by motorway links to Auckland and the International Airport as well as to major rail and ferry terminals. City bus services are also available.
The Albany campus is located at the East Precinct, off the Albany Expressway (State Highway 17).
