Let us know if you need a laptop or data to help with your studies

In response to the Government’s alert levels, AUT wanted to ensure all students have the ability to achieve their educational goals even within the COVID-19 restrictions.

We’ve arranged to lease up to 1,500 laptops and partnered with Skinny Jump to provide connectivity data packages to assist our students who wouldn’t otherwise been able to study online. These devices are loaned to students free of cost, to encourage students to make use of this offer. For data packages, students will get an initial 30Gb free data and 15Gb free on 1st of each month.
