AUT Ngā Wai o Horotiu marae serves as a whānau, cultural and spiritual centre. Ngā Wai o Horotiu is one of the ways in which AUT actively acknowledges the importance of the principles of the Treaty of Waitangi and expresses our deeply held belief that AUT is a centre of learning not only for all peoples, but also a particular place where Māori have a special and distinct role.

Ngā Wai o Horotiu is a place where you can stand proud. It is a tangible sign that the University is a learning organisation and one that is always seeking new ways of doing and being. Ngā Wai o Horotiu is the focal point that embraces the history of Māori and welcomes the many rich and diverse cultures at AUT.
