This Friday is the last day that AUT is fully open for the year. Our official summer operations period for 2019/2020 is from Saturday 14 December 2019 to Sunday 5 January 2020. During that time, some buildings will be closed and many services will be reduced or unavailable.

We encourage you to take a break during this period and return refreshed and ready to start the New Year. However, if you do wish to work over the holidays, read on for all the details you need to know.

All faculty and school postgraduate study rooms will be unavailable over the summer operations period. Central postgraduate study rooms (WU415-416 on the City campus, MA206 on the South campus,* and AL210 on the North campus) will be accessible by swipe card access as usual. However, the rooms won’t be serviced; so please make sure that you take your rubbish out with you and leave the rooms in a tidy condition. Cafes will be closed, though vending machines will be running in case of snacking emergencies. Also note: there will not be any supplies such as milk/tea/coffee provided over this period.
