Library branches

Unitec has three libraries across two of its three campuses. The collections vary from branch to branch in accordance with teaching needs at that location, but our full range of services is able to be accessed from all our locations. See the locations page for addresses and directions to each library location. Opening hours are on the dark grey menu above.

Its collections include Trade catalogues related to the architecture and construction industries, and 'Arts Files' with art exhibition catalogues and other information on NZ artists of an ephemeral nature, with pictorial content. It also holds a special collection of plans and papers related to landscape designer Fred Tschopp.
