Current campus updates

Over the next 10 years AUT’s campuses will undergo significant development that will improve student and staff experiences at AUT. A $400 million budget over this period will see construction and refurbishments happening across the City, South and North Campuses.

AUT City Campus

Current campus updates

  • New road markings are in place on St Paul Street defining mobility, motorcycle and loading zone parking. These new markings will be in place for the duration of the ETD construction period. The original parks will be reinstated once the development is complete
  • The St Paul St car park is now closed - consider using public transport to get to the City Campus
  • The Muslim Prayer Room (formerly located in WW) has moved to level 0 in WT, with access from Lorne St
  • The pedestrian path from St Paul St to Mount St is closed and will reopen later in 2016
  • Demolition of the former prayer hall in WW and WW101 will begin shortly and will take up to four weeks. All demolition material will be removed through the St Paul Street loading area and we are predicting no disruption to staff and students
  • The AUT shuttle buses on Mayoral Drive will experience temporary disruption and delays while some Auckland Transport buses are diverted there

New Engineering, Technology and Design building on St Paul Street


Construction is already underway. When completed the new building will be home to AUT’s School of Engineering, Computer and Mathematical Sciences.
