Welcome to AUT

Plan your Orientation with the AUT App

Get to know your faculty

Once you've been enrolled by your faculty, you'll be able to see your faculty pages on Canvas and learn more about them, meet some of the team, and see the support they provide. If you can’t view these pages yet, don’t worry. You'll have access in the lead-up to the start of semester.

Specialised student support

Our student services teams provide support for a range of needs you may have while you're studying at AUT. This includes, but isn't limited to, financial, academic, wellbeing, and adaptive technology support for students.
