Getting around

Getting around our campuses can be daunting at first. Here you’ll find the tips you need to easily find where you want to go.

Finding a building

University buildings are given a number which identifies them. Many buildings also have names, so you might hear people talking about ‘HSB’ (the Human Sciences Building) or building 201.

For example, find the service you want (eg, Admission and Enrolment), check the building number printed beside it (eg, 105), and then look for building 105 on the map.

Campus maps are the best way to find a building.

Download the AucklandUni mobile phone app and use the Maps module to help find your way around.

Alternatively, you can pick up a hard copy map from the Student Information Centres.

Finding your classes

When you search for classes on Student Services Online, you will see the location of each class listed beside the class number. All classes you are enrolled in for the selected semester will appear, giving the appropriate campus with the latest room allocation.

To check the class locations, visit Student Services Online.

The campus map for the City Campus has a list of lecture theatre locations underneath the map. Look at the letters given to the right of the building name – these are the codes for the lecture theatres in that building.

For example: if your class is in CAG 015, check the lecture theatre list under ‘Lecture Theatres’ on the map. (CAG) is the code given next to the building Commerce A. This means your class is in Room 015 of the Commerce A building. Lecture theatres are usually clearly signposted when you manage to find the correct building.

Don't be afraid to ask fellow students or staff members for help if you get lost. Staff at the student information centres can direct you to where you need to go, and give you a campus map.
