The University of Waikato (Maori: Te Whare Wananga o Waikato) is located in Hamilton and Tauranga, New Zealand, and was established in 1964. It has strengths across a broad range of subject areas, particularly its degrees in Computer Science and in Management. Its School of Maori and Pacific Development is acknowledged as the world centre for study in this subject area.

In 2002 over 14,000 students were enrolled at the university. More than a quarter of students were aged over 25, and over half were women. It has the highest proportion of Maori students on any campus in New Zealand. The Maori character of the campus is an important aspect of its overall identity.

Many sporting and cultural groups are active on campus, including various international students' clubs.
