Unitec was founded as Carrington Technical Institute in 1976. In 2006, Unitec opened its Waitakere Campus in the centre of Henderson, West Auckland. The campus is a joint development with the former Waitakere City Council and includes the new Waitakere Central Library. Unitec's Waitakere campus offers mainly introductory computing, preparing for study, and health and social work courses.
In August 2011, Unitec opened a campus in Albany, on Auckland's North Shore, but it was closed in December 2016.
There are also three libraries across the two existing campuses:
- Mt Albert, Te Puna Library
- Waitakere Campus Library
