Henderson Campus

Our Henderson campus is situated in West Auckland, with the Waitakere Ranges and west coast beaches close by and a sports stadium across the road. Students enjoy vibrant community life supported by purpose-built facilities, student accommodation, well-equipped lecture rooms, an extensive and well-resourced library and a lively cafe. The campus is only 20 minutes' drive from Auckland's city centre, so you have the flexibility of choosing city or country life at your leisure.

Campus Life

We’re a diverse community at the Henderson campus comprised of students and staff who come from different church denominations, cultures, countries and life experiences. We celebrate our unity in Christ and enjoy the richness of our diversity. Our campus is a busy place. We have around 200 people living on site in flats, houses and our East Wing studio rooms (students, staff and their families). On average, 500 full and part-time students study here each year. We run the Olive Shoots Early Childhood Centre and have other organisations operating on our campus (such as Jireh School and Vineyard College).

In addition to a fantastic library and a great café, our other facilities include a gym, chapel and student lounge. We also have a big field for social soccer, volley ball, rugby and picnics!
