Room configuration

At the end of the scheduled time, the client is responsible for restoring the room to its original configuration. Layout formats are provided in each room for reference.

Any rooms not returned to the configuration may incur charges at the discretion of centre management.

Set up / break down time

For onsite staff/student bookings, please be advised that if you require time to set up and break down your meeting room, you must ensure that you book this time as part of your reservation. The Ko Awatea Centre often run back-to-back meetings so you do need to ensure you have enough time to reconfigure your room to your requirements.

Should you no longer require your meeting room, the notification must be submitted in writing to, giving at least 24 hours notice.
