The Manukau Institute of Technology and Manukau Train Station

The Manukau Institute of Technology and Manukau Train Station.

Construction has started on Manukau’s newest Tertiary Campus in Hayman Park. The campus will also house the new Manukau Train Station and bus interchange. Classes are planned to start in the second semester next year. It is estimated that the campus will initially house between 50,000 and 65,000 fulltime-equivalent students. Up to 150,000 fulltime-equivalent students are expected to use the facility once stage two and three are completed. Other features of the new complex include a theatre that will be used by students and community groups, along with several commercial operators. Mayor Len Brown says “The Hayman Park site is a superb example of an integrated, transformational project aligning MIT with the local community, business and industry, Auckland Council and Auckland Transport.” South Auckland is fast becoming a hub for tertiary-level study with Auckland University of Technology opening a campus in Manukau in 2010. I personally love the fact that the new Manukau Train Station is incorporated into the campus.

    Are those active edges I see around the building. That would be interesting as so many educational buildings seem to disregard these.

    I wonder if that is the foyer that one will come into from the train station ? If so, it will be awesome.

    Love the proposed layout.
    Good the city of manakau finally will have a tertiary education centre to boast of, lens hand of influence?

  • 150,000 FTE at stage three? Is that correct?

    Correct me if I’m wrong but that would be about 10% of the auckland urban population, more than all of Aucklands other tertiary campuses put together and about the same number of daily trips as the entire CBD gets on a weekday.
