Student Support and Wellbeing

Our Student Support Team

Eugene Fuimaono and Tanya Lameta have a special focus on supporting Māori and Pasifika learners while also providing general support to all Carey students. Their office is located in Te Whare Oranga and they are available both in-person and online.

Our Library team is based in the Ayson-Clifford Library, and can assist you with library resources, referencing for assessments and general assessment skills.

There are a variety of avenues you can pursue for careers advice, and our team are happy to help you navigate them. Our Academic Registrar, Neroli Hollis, is your first port of call.

Our Student Association (SASS) organises activities and events to build community both on and off the campus.

Financial Support

During your time at Carey, you may encounter financial hardship for one reason or another. Whatever the reason, we are here to help, and our staff are available to chat through the options available to you. If you have a specific financial need, Carey has a small hardship fund for which you may be eligible. In the first instance, contact your programme leader or Rob Ayres, Academic Director, for a confidential discussion.
