You will need to make your own arrangements for transport home on Friday and Saturday nights, as we’re unable to provide a space to sleep overnight.
 
The Maker Space’s hours are from Saturday: 9:00 am – 5:30 pm, and Sunday: 9:00 am – 4:30 pm.

Where to go

Kiwijam Auckland is taking place at the Unleash Space at the University of Auckland. We’d recommend taking public transport to get here if you can, as parking in the CBD can be expensive! If you do end up taking a car, the OGGB carpark is your best bet for nearby covered parking at $6 per day.
