Parking on campus

Find out where students can park on or near AUT campuses, and what fees or rules may apply. There is no free parking for students on any campus. There are mobility spaces for students with a valid mobility parking permit.

AUT encourages the use of sustainable transport options rather than single occupier vehicles wherever possible.

City Campus parking

There is no parking for students on the City Campus, but there are lots of public car parks nearby.

Using 'park and ride' to get to the City Campus

You can park in the on-site pay and display areas on the North or South campuses and catch a bus to the city:

  • NX2 bus from the North Campus
  • AUT shuttle from the South Campus

North and South Campus parking

There is limited pay and display parking on the North and South campuses. Make sure you only park in pay and display car parks, and not in areas requiring a permit. Pay and display parking locations are:

Parking charges

Pay and display rates are $1.50 per hour, or $7.50 per day. These rates apply 6am to 6pm, Monday to Friday. Parking is free outside of these hours, and on weekends and public holidays.

Don't park in permit areas

Permit areas are clearly marked and students must not park in these, or any other area not designated a pay and display area. If you park in any unauthorised area, you may receive a breach notice from Parking Enforcement Services.

Student mobility parking

AUT campuses have mobility spaces for students who have a valid CCS Mobility permit. We can also provide a dedicated carpark if this is required. For more information, including details about parking locations, costs, accessing a dedicated park and financial help to pay for mobility parking costs, contact the Disability support team.
