Campus and building development 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 pedestrian path from St Paul St to Mount St is closed
  • There are intermittent delays for pedestrians and vehicles on St Paul Street. As a safety precaution, when the tower crane for the new Engineering, Technology and Design building lifts heavy materials onto the building site, traffic management personnel will stop vehicles and pedestrians from using the street underneath the swinging crane.
