How it works

Your Student ID card is loaded with the amount you choose to pay, and then you use your ID card to pay for your meals at either Refuel or KaiFé. While you can also buy other items (snacks and drinks, for example) from these and other AUT food outlets, you can only get a $6.50 hot meal at Refuel or KaiFé. Without a pre-paid plan, meals cost $7.00.

Go to the AUT Shop website to choose the meal plan amount you want to load to your card, and follow the instructions to make your purchase.
