Add money

About adding money

You can add money to your balance at any of the IC Helpdesks or by using one of the self-service EPOS stations located on campus.

  • Remember to bring your Campus Card (ID).
  • Any unused portion of your money is carried forward from one year to the next.

The IC Helpdesks only accept payments via EFTPOS or credit card.

Note: You must carry your University of Auckland Campus Card (ID) at all times while on campus. Your Campus Card will be needed for purposes such as adding money to your balance and borrowing books/laptops from the Library/Information Commons.

Printing Credit

If you use a printer or an MFD (Multi-Function Device: copier, printer, scanner in one) and experience problems (e.g., pages printed out blank), you should notify the local IT support staff and fill out the printing credit form.

ITS will investigate the claim and if successful, funds will be credited back to your CAPS (Copy and Print Service) account for the faulty print/copy job.
