Albany, the home of Massey’s Auckland campus, has been the fastest growing area of the North Shore. Strawberry gardens and dairy farms were redeveloped in the 1980s and 1990s into 10-acre lifestyle blocks or housing. Auckland campus opened in 1993, and the development was styled on a Mediterranean hill town.
The area around Albany village used to be a chicken farm, and the first student mascot at Auckland campus was a chicken.
Over the years the Auckland campus has grown rapidly as both domestic and international student numbers increased.
