You can also upload files from your H:\ drive to your personal computer by following these steps:

  1. Open up a web browser, for example Internet Explorer.
  2. Go to the MyFiles page (https://myfiles.aut.ac.nz/).

Email

Student Outlook is web-based email which means that it can be accessed from anywhere you have internet access. When you enrol at AUT, you automatically get a personal email address based on your login name. If your login is abc1234 then your email address would be abc1234@autuni.ac.nz. To access your AUT email click on the Email tab via the UniCentral site or go to http://studentmail.aut.ac.nz.

Forwarding AUT Emails To Personal Emails

Forwarding email means the email is received in your Office 365 Outlook mailbox as well as your personal mailbox. You can have the emails forwarded from your AUT Student Outlook to your personal email by following these steps:

  1. In Office 365 Outlook mailbox, select Settings (gearbox icon) > Options
  2. On the Option pane click Forwarding tab.
  3. Click Start forwarding radio button
  4. Enter the personal email on the box. If you wish to receive emails on both personal and AUT mailbox, Tick the box "Keep a copy of forwarded messages in Outlook Web App".
  5. Select Save to save your rule.
