Guided by the University of Waikato’s mission, ‘Ko te Tangata / For the People’, Chow:Hill’s Living Campus Master Plan provides a roadmap to maximise the unique potential of the University's green urban campus.

The master plan seeks to blur the boundaries between campus and community via the provision of a range of external activity zones and amenities, offering a variety of environments from active and social to vibrant and performative, to rest and recharge.

Encompassing the full breadth of the campus landscape setting, our architects, urban designers and landscapes architects have taken careful consideration of the spaces in between the buildings and the variety of environments and ecosystems that make up the University’s Hillcrest Road campus.

Chow:Hill’s master plan has been structured around the University’s core values: manaakitanga / showing care and respect for the campus community and its visitors and kaitiakitanga / being responsible custodians for the well-being of the campus community and surrounding resources.
