Housing Details:

Exchange students are guaranteed* accommodation at AUT’s on campus accommodation. Students must apply for AUT accommodation by a certain date, in order to reserve a room. Students will be able to still apply after the deadline, but accommodation will not be guaranteed. If students choose not to stay on on-campus accommodation, AUT will provide a list of contacts and resources in order to help you arrange alternative accommodation near campus.

AUT has three campus accommodations. One on the North Shore campus (Akoranga) and two on the City campus (Wellesley Student Apartments – WSA and Mayoral Drive Student Accommodation). Most classes take place at the AUT City Campus. WSA and Mayoral Drive is a 5-minute walk to the city campus.

*There will be a deadline to reserve a room. This date will be given to students during the AUT application
process. (Source: AUT Fact Sheet 2021)
