Welcome to 2017 at Whitireia Library


Whitireia library services update


The earthquake on 14 November affected our Porirua campus library building and it remains closed as a precautionary measure. The date of the reopening of the library building will be dependent on the structural engineers report.
In the meantime, library and support services are being provided as follows:
  • The Student Hub is open with the student help desk and a librarian present at all times. Library services will operate from the Student Hub on Monday to Thursday 8am-8pm and Friday 8am-5pm. There will be no library services available at the Student Hub on Saturday mornings at this stage. 
  • Porirua Public Library from 14 February. One library staff and one learning advisor will be available between 10am-3pm daily (except Saturday and Sunday). Study spaces will be available at the Porirua Public Library.
  • Students have direct access to any of the WelTec libraries for resources and support.  We do encourage students to use the WelTec library closest to them. Libraries are situated at the following locations: Petone campus, 21 Kensington Avenue, Petone; Wellington CBD campus, 11-17 Church Street, Wellington; School of Hospitality, 52 Cuba Street, Wellington.
  • From 14 February student support staff will be based in Ako Ake CafĂ© which is open from 7.30am-11pm, Monday-Friday.  
  • Student support staff will also be based in the Learning Street, Wikitoria Katene building, 10am- 3pm daily.  
  • A designated quiet room is available in the atrium, next to the Health Centre.
  • E101 is available for after-hours swipe access: 5pm–11pm Monday to Friday, 6am-6pm weekends. E101 and E102 are open for student study on weekdays 6am-5pm except when booked for a class.  The room must be vacated when a class is on unless you have the permission of the tutor to remain.
All Whitireia Porirua books and journals are in-accessible; e-resources are available.
If print material is required, staff will order this from one of our other campus libraries, SMART libraries (including WelTec) or via inter library loan.
