Salmond is renowned for its friendly atmosphere, great food and support for residents on their academic journey.
Our community is enhanced by all residents living within one building, having an active Student Association and an ethos of mutual respect.
The Whakataukī He aha te mea nui o te ao. He tāngata, he tāngata, he tāngata rings true at Salmond: What is the most important thing in the world? It is people, it is people, it is people.
Whether your interest is in debating, rowing, pool, art, chess, making a film in 48-hours, football, cultural dance, volleyball, dodgeball, lazer tag .... there is a way for you to represent the 'Mond in the intercollege competition. Recreational, or at a more competitive level, you choose how you want to contribute. But get involved! See the year planner which outlines all the major dates and competitons.
The Association helps organise the social, cultural and sports events in the College. The funding for the Association’s activities comes from the ‘activities fee’ levied on all residents, which subsidises the Orientation Week programme, t-shirt, College photo, as well as sporting and cultural competitions, shuttles to sports events and social events such as the Ball, mid-winter Christmas and Birthday Day. It also subsidises the purchase of new equipment, sports gear and entries to intercollege sports competitions.
Annual Events are likely to include:
"Really enjoying my time at the College this year. The fact that it includes both Polytech students as well as Uni means that there is a good mix of people and also makes meeting people really easy! Everyone is so welcoming, especially the management and residential leaders which makes the transition from College to Uni, and home to College, really easy.
Rooms are decent sized and really warm. evening shuttles make transport back to the college easy and the walk through the gardens is really enjoyable. Would recommend to all!"
