Student membership

The New Zealand Green Building Council (NZGBC) brings together all sectors of the building community, from urban planners to interior designers, who are committed to creating a sustainable built environment in New Zealand.

What is NZGBC student membership?

Student membership is open to any student (full time or part time) who is studying at a New Zealand tertiary education institution.

Student members enjoy many of the same member benefits as our industry members. There are also additional opportunities available just to student members.

Why become a member?

NZGBC student members can:

  • meet and network with other industry members
  • attend some member events free of charge (limited free spaces for students)
  • receive member discounts for NZGBC courses
  • listing on our student member directory
  • share or present your research through knowledge updates or member events
  • receive regular member communications
  • apply for internships and volunteer positions when available – at NZGBC and member companies.
  • What is the cost?

    Student membership is free for students of NZGBC member tertiary institutions; all other students pay just $28.50 including GST per year. (See our member directory to confirm if your institution is a member.) The student membership year runs from 1 April to 31 March
