University facilities include several libraries, a language learning centre, cafés, a bank, book centre, computer shop, newspapers, recreation and cultural facilities.

The Victoria University Students’ Association funds almost 100 social, sporting, cultural and ethnic clubs that are free, or reasonably priced to join.

At the Recreation Centre, open up to 16 hours a day students can get involved in a wide variety of health and fitness activities, outdoor pursuits and dance classes. The Recreation Centre and the Students’ Association often arrange trips around Wellington and to other parts of New Zealand so that students have the opportunity to travel at weekends and during holidays.

The Vietnamese Students’ Association also offers an opportunity for Vietnamese students to engage in sports such as badminton, athletics and attend cultural activities, while meeting other Vietnamese and
international students. Victoria has both a Student Health Service and Learning Support Service.

The Student Health Service has a range of trained medical professionals to assist with any health issues, and a counselling service. The Student Learning Support Service provides workshops and one-on-one sessions with students to assist with study skills, skills in research and writing of assignments, and exam techniques.
