School of Chemical Sciences


Life at the School of Chemical Sciences

There is more to university life than study. On and off campus, you will find a multitude of cultural, social and leisure activities to entertain and inspire you.

Chemistry is involved in the understanding of processes, and the production of molecules and materials essential to modern life. The School of Chemical Sciences at The University of Auckland is one of New Zealand's largest schools of chemistry, with a strong history and commitment to research and teaching excellence. Our research greatly enhances our teaching programmes, and you can expect to be taught by academics who are leading researchers in their fields.

The majority of offices of academic staff and the research laboratories are spread over floors 4 to 7 in building 301, 23 Symonds Street. Some staff and laboratories are based on our Grafton, Newmarket and Waiheke campuses. Given that the Science faculty is currently engaged in a significant building project our staff have been relocated during 2013.
