Students’ Association

The EIT Student Association (EITSA) serves students by acting as the voice of the student body, advocating student issues, and promoting the social, cultural, recreational and educational interests of students on all Eastern Institute of Technology campuses including online students.

Our vision is to create a student environment that empowers and supports all students of the Eastern Institute of Technology to achieve their training, and educational goals.


The Student Advocate assists students to resolve academic grievances, Study Link queries, enrolment issues, issues with EIT regulations and policies, and other concerns affecting their study at EIT.  The Student Advocate aims to empower students to resolve their concerns at the earliest opportunity, but if required, supports them to work towards longer term resolution of issues through established procedures. This may include mediation, assistance with drafting appeal applications and representation before Faculty Academic Committees.


EITSA provides a democratic voice for all students at EIT by representing them through working relationships with EIT and other outside organisations. Students are able to express concerns or views relating to their education through the Student Associations representatives on various boards and committees. EITSA representatives also build relationships in the community to broker discounts, deals, and opportunities for students enrolled at EIT.

Social (Events, Sports and Recreation)

To help students achieve the necessary study/life balance required to succeed EITSA provides recreational activities/facilities. EITSA runs a variety of events throughout the student calendar to cater for the wide range of cultures, age groups, and interests in the student body. The student café areas at Taradale and Tairāwhiti provided by EIT make relaxing central areas for students to gather and unwind. The facilities include a shop that provides drinks, snacks, phone cards, book binding, phone top ups and Eftpos.
