Today we welcomed Prime Minister, Jacinda Ardern and Te Puhi Ariki Ngāwai hono i te po Paki, representing King Tūheitia to campus to mark the beginning of the construction of our new marae and student hub, The Pā.

This ceremony, guided by leaders of Waikato Tainui and the Kīngitanga, infused two traditions: breaking the ground, and embedding the mauri for The Pā. Breaking the ground in this way signals that construction of this major facility will be underway shortly, and the embedding of a whatu, a mauri stone, symbolises the beating heart of the new university wharenui and the broader complex of The Pā.

The Pā will become a welcoming and vibrant part of the Hamilton campus, with food outlets, social and learning spaces, and a new University marae. Site preparations will begin later this month, with construction starting in March 2020. The Pā is set for completion by February 2022.
