Sports teams and opportunities

Playing sport is a great way to meet new people, stay fit and get involved in university life. We help provide a range of events throughout the year, and offer regular social sport and rec activities for all students as well as opportunities to attend regional, national and international events.

Our teams have represented AUT and New Zealand in countries around the world.

Dedicated sport service

A team of staff support our students across all campuses, helping to provide a full calendar of sporting events. They can also help you to find a team to join, or support you in creating a new one.

Sporting opportunities

Here's just some of what we offer:

  • Club sport teams including basketball, football, netball and Ultimate Frisbee
  • Opportunity to represent AUT in the UTSNZ National Tertiary Championship events
  • Social sport teams like indoor netball and volleyball, 7-a-side football
  • Recreational activities including one off tournaments and ‘pick up and play’ activities
  • Residential sport tournaments, for students living in AUT accommodation
