Balfour Road Auckland Campus

Whitecliffe College of Arts and Design is located in a modern facility on Balfour Road, Parnell, that includes studios, library, darkrooms, lighting studio, seminar rooms, student common room, lecture hall and our administration offices.

High ceilings mean each first year studio has a high amount of natural sunlight, making them ideal not just for daily classes but also for exhibitions of work.

Students have just a five minute walk to the Parnell Rose Gardens and ten to the The Strand. Whitecliffe operates on three floors of the Balfour Road building, currently shared with Industrial Research.

Symonds Street Campus: 2020

From 1 January 2020 Whitecliffe College will be based in a new flagship campus at 67 Symonds Street.

This upgraded campus will set a new level of facilities provided for students with classrooms located across three adjoining buildings. This will be the first time that Whitecliffe Arts, Design, Fashion and Technology students will be located together.

Symonds Street is the student hub of Auckland, supporting different Universities and Colleges. There are numerous food and entertainment options close by and the public transport options are an improvement over the current Parnell location. 

Manukau Campus

The new Whitecliffe College Manukau campus opens in July 2019 at 3 Osterley Way. This modern campus is conveniently located above the Manukau Library and next to major bus stops. It is less than a minute to Westfield Manukau City which provides many food options.

Whitecliffe Fashion Tech, Arts and Design and Digital Media Certificates are provided at this campus. 

St George's Bay Road Studios & Pearce Gallery

Our St Georges Bay Road Studios & Pearce Gallery are just 3 minutes walk from the Balfour Road building in Auckland. This spacious building houses studio spaces for students in the Fine Arts major, as well as a dedicated computer lab for Year 4 Graphic Design students.

The Pearce Gallery, located at the front of the Studios, is available for internal and external exhibitions. Contact Jill Sorensen, Gallery Co-ordinator, at jills@whitecliffe.ac.nz to enquire about booking the Pearce Gallery.
