Exercise Sciences move to purpose-built facilities in Newmarket


About the move


The Department of Exercise Sciences has moved to new purpose-built facilities at the University of Auckland's Newmarket campus (building 907, at the end of Suiter Street, off Khyber Pass Road). The move took place during the Easter break.

This is an exciting opportunity for everyone who interacts with us, from our staff and clinic clients to our current and prospective students.

The relocation offers many advantages for each of our key stakeholders.

Where are our new purpose-built facilities are based


The Department of Exercise Sciences has moved to the Newmarket Campus (building 907). You can find them at the end of Suiter Street, which is off Khyber Pass Road. 

Being situated at the Newmarket campus provides added benefits to our department and all those that use it, as it is close to the City and Grafton campuses and has fantastic public transport links. The new site is only 500 metres from the nearest train station and 200 metres from the closest bus stops. We are also fortunate to have five car parking buildings within a 200 metre radius.

Information for our current and future students


Our new facilities at the Newmarket campus are a fantastic opportunity for our current and future students for many reasons, including:

New state-of-the-art facilities and labs that are purpose-built for Exercise Sciences

These allow us to teach both our undergraduate and postgraduate students in environments tailor-made for the best delivery of our Exercise Sciences courses. 

Co-located facilities - Clinics, research facilities and teaching labs will all be located on one site

Bringing together the Exercise Sciences facilities at the Newmarket campus allows better integration of teaching with our research facilities. Our students have easier access to teaching equipment, workshops, teaching labs and postgraduate rooms, whilst also enabling better support from technicians.

More central location - close to the City and Grafton campuses and all of the opportunities of the CBD

The Newmarket campus is in a much more central location than our previous space on the Tāmaki campus and offers a host of advantages for our students. The new location means an increased ease of access and closer proximity to the City and Grafton campuses and other University facilities. This is particularly helpful to students who are completing double majors.

The Newmarket location also brings fantastic health and wellbeing opportunities for all of our students as it is walking distance to the nearby shopping precinct, which houses cafes, shops and leisure facilities. We are also close to Auckland Domain and Auckland Museum; perfect for summer strolls and taking a break.

Fantastic public transport links

The new site is close to both the Newmarket and Grafton train stations. It is also only 200 metres from the closest bus stops. For those who chose to drive, there are five car park buildings within a 200 metre radius.

Close links to allied health professionals

Being in Newmarket brings Exercise Sciences closer to some of the allied health profesionals that we have established relationships with, including Auckland City Hospital and Nugent Street Clinic. This proximity provides new collaborative possibilities for our postgraduate students. 

Information about the move to our new premises will be directly communicated to students as it is available.
