Massey University began in 1927 as a small agricultural college in Palmerston North. Under its first principal, Sir Geoffrey Peren, it widened its range and enhanced its reputation. Sir Geoffrey retired in 1958, and in 1964, Massey became a full university. In the last 40 years, it has continued growing, to become New Zealand's largest residential university, spread over three cities.
The Research Support Services at Massey University consists of four clusters that provide policy and operational support to all research related activities within the institution. These functions range from providing support to doctoral and research students, assisting in the development of funding proposals and associated contracting, budgeting advice and project management, providing training and development opportunities for staff and students at all stages of their research career and policy development and implementation to support the Research Strategy.
Massey has seven student associations. Massey student associations aim to make sure that university students enjoy the best university experience possible. They provide leadership to the student body and are also student advocates to the university and wider community.
