You can top up your print and internet accounts by visiting the Self service Top Up Kiosks, which are located on every campus, as detailed below. You can also top up online using your credit card.
All AUT student accounts will be allocated with 4GB free data per month. Once the free data has been used, students will need to top up their deposit account (online or via the top-up kiosks). Unused data is not carried forward to the next month.
We recommend that you consider topping up your account in small amounts, e.g. $5 or $10, especially if you are in your last semester. Please note that if you are leaving the University and wish to have your personal internet/print money refunded, a $25 administration fee will apply, regardless of the amount to be refunded. This is to cover the University's cost of administering a refund.
