Founded in 1891, AUSA is the oldest student association in the country.

The core business of AUSA is to serve the students at The University of Auckland. AUSA does this by providing education and welfare support services, student facilities, as well as representation and advocacy for students within both the University and the wider community.

AUSA is New Zealand’s only voluntary students’ association, which means you choose whether to join in order to access the many benefits that AUSA provides. It is also completely free to join.
