Getting to know your home page
Your home page gives you direct access to most areas of Student Services Online. It also lets you know if you have outstanding or overdue items that might prevent you enrolling in any courses.
Your ‘Holds’ list shows any overdue enrolment or library fees that are now preventing you from accessing University of Auckland services, such as enrolling in courses.
- To Do list
Your ‘To Do’ list gives you a reminder of what you still need to do in order to complete your application for a programme. You should also check your application status directly. See How to apply for admission.
Finance links and information are available below your class timetable, scroll down to see them.
When you’re using Student Services Online, to return to your home page, look for a ‘home’ link at the top of each page (just below your name).
Log in and log out
The University of Auckland provides single-sign-on to many of its online services.This means that while you are signed into one of these services you will not have to sign in again to access others.
However, to sign out (log out) of single-sign-on services you must close all sessions of the browser(s) you’re using in order to protect your privacy.
You sign into Student Services Online using single-sign-on.
If you are a current student at the University of Auckland or already registered with the University:
Sign in using your username or registered email address, and your University password.If you have forgotten your password, you can reset your password online.

If you are not yet registered with the University of Auckland, see How to apply for admission.
The University’s single-sign-on services do not have a sign-out or log-out button.To sign out of any or all single-sign-on services you must close all sessions of the internet browser(s) you are using, in order to protect your privacy.
To help protect your privacy, if you are signed into one or more of the University’s online services using single-sign-on and you don’t do anything in them for more than 30 minutes, your sessions will time out.
This means you’ll be automatically logged out of all of the University’s single-sign-on services that you were using at the time.
Any activity in any one of the services before the time out period expires will prevent them all from timing out.
Anyone is welcome to browse the course catalogue or search for class details without signing in.
