Prepaid Student Meals


Product Description


Want at least one good meal a day?

Then sign up for the PRE-PAID MEAL PLAN.

How much is a meal?

Refuel has discounted your daily hot buffet meal to $6.00 with the Pre-paid Meal Plan. A cooked or continental breakfast is available at $6.00.

All other Food Outlets are at standard pricing.

How does it work?

We will load onto your AUT Student ID card a pre-determined amount of money to cover a meal at $6.00 a day for either one or two semesters (full year) Monday to Friday excluding breaks. You will then be able to go and buy food and beverage at any of the AUT City or South Campus operated Food Outlets.

  • City Campus: Refuel (WC220) The Counter (WF102) #newsfeed (WG305)
  • South Campus: KaiFe (MD207) any time that they are open semester weeks or even during the semester breaks when you are here.

7am-10am for a hot breakfast

How do the Food Outlet staff know that I am part of this meal plan?

Present your AUT Student ID card. At anytime you can ask how much you have left on your card.

Can I buy any beverage items with my prepaid card?

Yes, coffee, hot chocolate, teas or cold beverage can be deducted from your pre-paid card.

So I cannot pick up a meal, what do I do?

You need to arrange with another student to pick up your meal on your behalf and get them to deduct 2 meals from their AUT Student ID card. You can “repay” them later by having a meal with them and paying for their meal on your AUT Student ID card. All meals must be deducted from someone’s card.

I have a food allergy or am a vegetarian, am I catered for?

If you have any food allergies, then email Yoyo Fu ( Cafes Manager) yfu@aut.ac.nz

There will always be a vegetarian option available at Refuel.

Can I give my AUT Student ID card to someone else to use for a meal?

It is your pre-paid card but the Food Outlet staff may question the holder if the photo does not match.

What happens if I lose my AUT Student ID card?

Besides getting a new AUT Student ID card, you must let us know so that we can put a hold on your remaining balance. When you receive a new card let us know your new barcode number and we will transfer the balance.

I have a concern with the meal, who do I see?

If you have any concerns with the meals or service, please contact either the Food Outlet’s Supervisor or Yoyo Fu ( Cafes Manager) yfu@aut.ac.nz

What happens with any remaining monies loaded on my AUT Student ID Card?

You must use up the amount before you leave AUT.
