VUWTC is one of the busiest, largest, sexiest, and most exciting clubs on campus.
We offer huge amounts of thrilling pursuits to distract you
from your studies and work!

Join the club!

Join the club to go on trips, get awesome discounts and party at our social events!

6 month memberships are $15 for students, $20 for non-students. You can join at our weekly meetings.



Our meetings are usually held every Tuesday at 7pm, in MYLT101 of Murphy Building at Kelburn Campus of VUW, or at the Welsh Dragon Bar outside uni term time.

Come along to see what we do and find out about tramping this weekend.


Write a trip report!

Share your adventures, and get your write-up / pics in the end of year club magazine, Heels.

It doesn't have to be an essay or an epic - anything is good from poems, recipes, pictures, quotes to whatever your imagination can dream up!

What we do

Find out about our club, how to prepare for or lead a tramp, how to contact us, and how to find success in life.
