Safety and security

Safety for students on campus is our priority. Our friendly security staff are available day and night to help, and the AUT Safe app is a handy tool for anything safety related at AUT.

In this section, you'll find information on AUT's emergency and safety procedures, as well as tips to help keep you safe when you’re on campus.

How to report an incident or emergency

In any emergency (where there is imminent danger to life or property), call 111 for fire, police or ambulance. If you're dialling from an AUT phone, dial 1 for an outside line then dial 111.

The physical addresses of AUT campuses are:

  • City Campus – 55 Wellesley Street East, Auckland City
  • North Campus – 42 Akoranga Drive, Northcote
  • South Campus – 640 Great South Road, Manukau
