About The University of Auckland
The University of Auckland was formally launched on 23rd of May 1883 as Auckland University College, part of the University of New Zealand. A neglected courthouse and jail served as location for the 95 students and four teaching staff. The number increased slowly but steadily during the remainder of the 19th century; by 1901 it had increased to 156 students.
Many students were registered part-time, training as teachers or law clerks, though after 1905 the number of commerce students increased markedly. During this time, the University concentrated on teaching: research was not expected, and was rarely done by teaching staff. Yet, some students carried out remarkable early research, most particularly in chemistry.
