  • What a dumpster fire of a University. They started charging for parking, although due to Hamilton's rubbish public transport - everyone still has to drive anyway. I've been in and out of hospital for almost a decade, and the university would refuse to give me any kind of leniency. Even when fresh out of surgery - I could never get any kind of close parking. My lecturers ranged from amazing (
  • Doesn't offer much in the way of on campus fun (especially now student union donations are optional), and while I had some amazing teachers, others came across as bored and without passion (this was a common complaint from my peers as well). More funding should go to live music, on campus markets, more interesting food (have you geard the legend that was Wheel Cake Man?), and more staff perks to keep the staff enthusiastic.
  • Campus is beautiful, university can be better. My advice for any international student considering studying at Waikato is: Do not. There are plenty of better options out there.
  • The 3rd top university in New Zealand. Have an amazing infrastructure as well as dedicated and fabulous faculty. It feels like haven!
  • World class business education facilities
