Everyone is welcome to come and see MIT’s soaring six storey ‘smart’ Campus that sits on top of the new Manukau Train Station.

Auckland Transport is providing free tickets for anyone wanting to travel by train to the Open Day Festivities.

Guided tours of the 14,000 m² building allow the first public viewing of the 250-seat Digital Theatre, rugby-field sized Atrium and a view of all seven floors including the transport terminal.

Food stalls, performance art, music, entertainment, train & bus schedules, Hop Cards and information on vocational training, studying and course selection at MIT will also be on site.
