When you arrive at International House, we’ll help you settle in and can give you advice about studying and living here.
On your first day you will have a school orientation and meet International House staff. International House has a dedicated Pastoral Care Coordinator for our students. We also have a 24/7 emergency contact phone line.
Our team at International House can give you advice about setting up a bank account, accommodation and seeing a doctor.
There is an independent learning centre and computer lab for self-access study in the school. We also have a student lounge.
Other student services include medical centres, gyms, religious support and the AUT library.
There are lots of clubs and groups you can get involved with when you’re studying here – including study groups, cultural and religious groups, sports and more. Some of them include:
AUTSA aims to represent AUT students and make AUT a fun, safe place for you. AUTSA can help you with things like legal information and support, job search help, and connecting you with people or services.
AUTSA runs lots of campus events and activities, and has ski accommodation in Tongariro National Park. Their website has more information.
iStudent Complaints is an independent dispute resolution scheme established by the New Zealand Government. It helps international students resolve disputes between students and their education provider.
International House students can get free counselling sessions and mental health support at AUT. You can also join support groups on campus.
Our gyms on campus have modern equipment and you can also join in group fitness classes. There are special fees for student memberships.
