Take a tour of Elam

Comprehensive tours of Elam are available for prospective students, teachers, parents and anyone else who is interested in what we do. You will be able to chat about our programmes and visit our studios, library (the best fine arts library in New Zealand), gallery spaces, workshops (wood, metal, print), spray booth, state-of-the-art HD suite, digital hub and dark rooms.

Elam is situated at the University of Auckland’s City Campus, so while you're there you can also check out other facilities such as the Recreation Centre, banks, cafés, Shadows Bar and other hubs of student life.

All tours meet at the Creative Arts and Industries Student Centre, Level 2, Building 421 (Architecture and Planning Building), 26 Symonds Street. Parking is available under the Owen G. Glenn Building, Grafton Road. Map
