AUT Wallet: Terms and Conditions

Your AUT Wallet is your personal account at AUT, able to be used for purchasing services at AUT such as printing, internet access over the AUT network, and the shuttle bus between City and South campuses. From time to time, AUT will add other items to this list.

Top-ups

The top-up process uses a standard third-party payment facility. Your credit/EFTPOS card details are not shared with AUT at any time during the process. If your credit card/EFTPOS payment was successful, then your balance in the AUT Wallet is updated immediately.

If your top-up is declined by the payment facility and you believe it should have been accepted, you need to contact your bank – AUT cannot assist in these cases.

Fees and interest

The third-party payment facility may charge a bank fee for the top-up service. AUT does not have any involvement in this process and does not receive any part of these fees.

AUT does not charge any fees for any transactions made using the AUT Wallet.

No interest is payable on balances in the AUT Wallet. AUT expects that students will not maintain large balances.

Maximum top-ups/balances

The minimum amount that can be topped up in one transaction is $1, and the maximum is $100.

Usage

The funds in your AUT Wallet are only able to be used for purchasing goods/services at AUT – not at other outlets.

Refunds

You can request a refund by emailing walletrefund@aut.ac.nz for any money which you personally have topped up – you can’t be reimbursed for funds which AUT has provided (like a printing allowance as part of your enrolment).

Student FAQs

If you don’t have a smartphone

If you don’t have a smartphone, you can use your Student ID to pay for rides on the AUT shuttle bus. Email the AUT Transport team to register your Student ID barcode against the AUT Wallet.
