It's official - our student village Te Pā Tauira serves the best meals in the Campus Living Villages (CLV) network! 

Across the ten CLV sites, we came out on top for the variety of food provided, meal sizes, and the cleanliness of the dining hall - and were a close second when it came to the friendliness of the kitchen team and learners' dietary requirements being met. 

Mark Lane, Team Leader Functions and Catering, says it's no surprise that the food at Te Pā Tauira was rated so highly. 

"We have a great team who are dedicated to providing creative and healthy menu options for our residents."

Te Pā Tauira is at full capacity this year, with 180 learners on the waiting list. Our Student Success team is working with the waitlisted learners to ensure that they have accommodation options. 

The village, which was opened in 2018, is as renowned for its caring culture and sustainable build as it is for its food options.
