Fees for AUT student accommodation

We calculate the cost of your accommodation over the full period of a semester or year.

Payment options

You can pay your accommodation costs in full (in advance) or by instalment every two weeks.

Advance payment

If you pay in advance for the full semester or year you don’t have to pay the extra instalment fee. If you pay for the full year, you get the inter-semester break for free.

You can move into your accommodation once we let you know we’ve received your full payment.

Instalment payments

When you pay by instalment there is an extra fee of $250 each semester.

You must set up automatic instalments via your bank. These payments must be made every 2 weeks, starting 2 weeks after you move into your accommodation. You also need to pay a deposit:

  • 4 weeks’ deposit if you’re staying for a semester
  • 6 weeks’ deposit if you’re staying for a year

You must pay your total accommodation fees by the end of your payment date.
