Finding your way around

Becoming familiar with Wellington and Victoria takes a little time, especially when you're new to the country, too.

Our campuses

Victoria University has four campuses across Wellington—Kelburn, Pipitea, Te Aro and Karori. Find all the information you need to get there and get around on our campuses.

Finding your lecture theatres

To locate the lecture theatre buildings on the Kelburn campus (where most 100-level courses are taught), download the Kelburn campus map.

Maps are available for other campuses at the Victoria Info Ihonui.

Building abbreviations

Buildings have their names abbreviated to two letters, and lecture theatres are signalled by ‘LT’. The first number signals what level they are on.
