The AUT Employability and Careers team helps you consider your career options and develop the skills you need to stand out to employers and become a highly employable graduate.
We also have an online centre – Employability Lab Online – where AUT students and graduates can make appointments, book to attend events, look for jobs, or access our online resources to help with CVs, job search or interview techniques.
Living in student accommodation is a great option – especially if you’re in your first year of study or from outside Auckland. AUT’s student accommodation is convenient and modern – live just minutes away from our City or North Campus.
Living on campus is about more than just the room. You become part of a community from the moment you arrive, with opportunities to make social connections and to develop leadership and life skills that will help you succeed at AUT.
The ICT Service Desk can help with computers, network, internet, printers and other ICT services.
AUT has medical centres for students at our City and North campuses. These are staffed by doctors and nurses who provide a range of medical services. Our South Campus offers nursing services only.
Routine appointments are free for domestic students who enrol with us as their main healthcare provider.
AUT has three campuses with a range of study options:
Our City Campus is in the heart of Auckland. It is AUT’s biggest campus and home to most academic units and the central administration, including the Vice-Chancellor’s office.
Our North Campus is on Auckland’s North Shore and offers facilities including student accommodation, cafes and our biggest sports centre.
Our South Campus is located in the heart of Manukau. You can choose from courses based entirely at the South Campus, or include papers at the City or the North Campus.
Our three gyms (City, North and South campuses) offer modern equipment, plus a great range of group exercise classes and access to other sport and fitness services.
