Our campuses: guides to the City, North and South Campus

AUT has three campuses around Auckland – in the city, on the North Shore, and in Manukau. Get campus maps, directions and parking information for each campus:

Find a room or lecture theatre: understanding AUT’s room codes

All rooms at AUT have a room code – usually made up of two letters and three numbers, like WG406.

  • W: the first letter tells you the campus:
    • W = City Campus (located on Wellesley St)
    • A = North Campus (located on Akoranga Drive)
    • M = South Campus (located in Manukau)
  • G: the second letter tells you the building (each building has a different letter allocated to it)
  • 4: the first number tells you the level (or floor) of the building
  • 06: the last two numbers tell you the room number

Wheelchair access on campus

You can access all lecture theatres, classrooms, buildings and most toilets at AUT by wheelchair.

Most of our buildings have a lift or ramp, with an accessible toilet close by. Many doors open automatically or have buttons to open them.

All AUT shuttle buses are wheelchair accessible and can be lowered on request.

Visually impaired students

Guide dogs and support dogs are welcome on campus. Some of our lifts have raised numerals or braille on buttons, and others also use voice announcements.


We’re a diverse community and we support inclusiveness and accessibility on campus. If you have questions about accessibility on campus that we haven’t answered here, contact the Student Hub.
