Te Rau Tauawhi – Māori Student Support

Te Rau Tauawhi Campus Student Centres under Covid conditions

Te Whare Taupua on the Ōtehā (Albany) Campus will be closed until lockdown restrictions are lifted, or it is deemed safe for students and staff to return to campus by appropriate authorities.

Our Centres on the Manawatū and Pukeahu (Wellington) Campuses are still open under Alert Level 2, however strict adherence to social distancing and hygiene guidelines are required to keep each other safe. Kai and Kōrero will consist of takeaway meals only, to ensure we limit gatherings in the Centres and reduce risk to you. 

Study equipment

If you are having study equipment issues, or if you are unable to source or obtain a study device for any reason, please do apply for the Technology Assistance Programme Loan Equipment. This will get you access to technology such as a laptop, or internet to loan/borrow throughout Semester Two (no fees attached). To request a study device (laptop), or internet assistance simply log in to your student portal, select Scholarships at the top of the home page, then select 'Apply for scholarship'. You will find on page 3 the 'Technology Assistance Programme Loan Equipment' scholarship that you can apply to. 

If you need any support from our Te Rau Tauawhi Team you can contact the staff listed below. Stay safe and look after one another.

Keeping safe

We should also endeavour to keep the foundation of our Whare Tapa Whā as strong as possible:

Taha Tinana

  • Protect the resilience of those in your whare.
  • Look after physical health and wellbeing.
  • Keep a 2-metre distance from others in public.

Taha Wairua

  • Stay positive.
  • Keep lifting the spirits of those with you.
  • Draw strength from our waiata, haka, karakia, kōrero and whakataukī.

Taha Hinengaro

  • Stay well informed.
  • Try to keep the mind at ease.
  • Apply the mātauranga that you have acquired to benefit others.

Taha Whānau

  • Stay in touch with loved ones who are elsewhere.
  • Look after those in your whare.
  • Draw inspiration from whakapapa.

If you need help during your time at Massey, we are here to help you. Nau mai, haere mai.
