Rooms available for Community Groups

The Trust Waikato building has meeting rooms available for organisations that have a community focus. These can be used free of charge and are located on the ground floor, at 4 Little London Lane, Hamilton.

The rooms have various seating options to suit the purpose of your meeting or event. On the ground floor is a community kitchen that includes crockery and cutlery, a fridge, oven and dishwasher.
