TSA (Tamaki Students’ Association)

The Tamaki Students’ Association (TSA) is a group of students who represent the Tamaki Campus students’ voice. The TSA is passionate about student welfare and advocacy and provides students with the support and means to make our campus more efficient overall. We work diligently to provide services that will encourage students interaction within the Tamaki Campus as well as promote student affiliation within not only the Tamaki Campus, but the entire University of Auckland. TSA services sports equipment, lost property, food banks, and welfare assistance. We are also able to voice concerns and be a reliable medium between staff and students relating to campus operations.

The TSA Office is located in the retail centre in the Tamaki campus. Here you can apply for AUSA Hardship grants, make advocacy appointments, and enquire about the range of services the TSA provides.
