Living on campus at AUT is a great option, particularly if you're in your first year or from out of town. AUT student accommodation is convenient, modern and supportive - just minutes from the AUT City or North Campus. AUT student accommodation is more than a room – it’s where you'll make friends and settle into university life. AUT’s Residential Services staff run programmes to support you with all aspects of living on campus.

Wellesley Student Apartments offer shared apartment living on AUT's City Campus.It is  self-catered and located in a 13-storey building, housing 502 residents. The apartments are a 5-minute walk to the City Campus.

Akoranga Student Village offers shared apartment living on AUT's North Campus.  It  has 40 townhouse-style, self-catered apartments housing 207 residents.  It  is just a 5 minute walk to AUT North Campus.

External accommodation options for AUT students

Accommodation options close to AUT include apartments, houses, homestays, student accommodation, backpackers and generally involve independent living on your own, with other students or individuals in the workforce.

If you are interested in any of the accommodation options then please contact the accommodation provider directly for information on booking, availability and tenancy costs.

These accommodation options have not been inspected by AUT staff to verify the quality standard, nor are they endorsed by AUT.

 We recommend a short-term option such as a backpackers or youth hostel. These give you time to get settled into Auckland while you look for somewhere suitable to live longer term.

Flatting is a good option if you have completed your first year, or wish to live independently. Sharing a flat with a mix of different people is a great way to make new friends.

Most flats are furnished and you just need to bring your personal belongings, and pay for your share of rent, electricity/gas, water, and internet. You might also share the cost of food and groceries.

Long-term accommodation for either a semester or a full academic year is more cost effective while living in Auckland. Expect to pay a bond (typically two-four weeks of rent), and also one week's rent (or more) in advance. The bond is returned to you at the end of your stay as long as the property is in a clean and tidy condition.

A homestay is a great option if you would prefer to experience living in a Kiwi household with a family.

Renting your own private apartment or house is suitable for students who want to live on their own, or for postgraduate students who need accommodation that is suitable for a family.
