Waipapa Marae

The University Marae, Waipapa, is situated next to the Department of Māori Studies at 16 Wynyard Street.

The complex was built to provide an environment for teaching and research in Māori Studies and to encourage greater Māori student attendance and participation at the University. It also provides a place where visitors can be formally welcomed to the campus.

The Marae is for the benefit and support of the entire University community. Departments can negotiate to use the facilities for appropriate functions. University staff are encouraged to visit the whare whakairo (meeting house), Tane-nui-a-Rangi. Unlike many whare whakairo on tribal marae, this house represents all major tribes.

Tāne-a-nui-a-rangi is a book explaining the symbolism of the meeting house. It can be purchased from the Department of Māori Studies or the University Bookshop.
