Transport and Parking

Visitor Parking

There’s free parking at all our campuses. If you’re a visitor to Mokoia, Bongard, or Windermere Campus please ask at the reception desk for a pass which will allow you to park nice and close to the entrance as it can get very busy at times.

Bongard Centre Parking

Bongard parking can get scarce during busy times but if you're on campus for the day Cliff Road and Dive Crescent, both down by The Strand, are $2 and $2.50 per day respectively and are only a 5-7 minute walk. Check out Tauranga City Council's parking page for the full list of parking options around town.


As an enrolled student you may be entitled to special offers on bus fares when you show your student ID. This varies depending on the bus company so please check with them directly.

There is also a free bus service out of Taupō, Tokoroa, and Whakatāne, to and from Mokoia Campus (offered at set times only). Ask us for more information.

If you're entitled to a student loan, you should be able to draw down $1,000 of course related costs and this money can be used towards travel expenses.
