Topping Up your Print and Internet Account

You can top up your Print and Internet account by visiting the self service Top Up Kiosks located at various locations across all three campuses.  You can also top up online using your credit card.

Topping Up your Print Account

As AUT's printing and copying costs are very low, we recommend that you work out the amount of pages you need to print and top up accordingly. Consider topping up your account in small amounts, e.g. $2 or $5, 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.
