Kia Ora,

Our thoughts are with our Auckland MAINZ whanau, given the Campus facilities that have been severely affected by the recent Flooding in the North Island region and at this time currently the Campus is closed until further notice, but any decisions relating to the Auckland campus does not affect MAINZ Christchurch and we are operating and taking applications and enquiries as per normal.
