Smart Newtown

From a central location next to the Newtown Library, free internet access, basic computing classes, computer support and advice to the public, is provided six days a week.

Smart Newtown was launched in October 2000 as a joint project between Wellington City Council, Wellington Region Economic Development Agency (REDA) and the Wellington Region 2020 Communications Trust.

It began as a pilot scheme to offer computer access and training to Wellington communities that did not have easy access to computer technology and have access to the growing opportunities computer experience provides. Smart Newtown has grown a lot since then; explore the Smart Newtown website for more details!

Smart Newtown is funded by the Wellington City Council and overseen by a Management Committee. The onsite team is made up of computer-savvy professionals who know their stuff, and are happy to help if you need it.

The Smart Newtown website is hosted by Wellington Community Net which provides free webhosting for not-for-profit groups in the Wellington region.
