AUSA, Addressing Period Poverty. Period.

Having sanitary products to use every month should be a necessity, not a luxury.

Thanks to AUSA and the University of Auckland, free sanitary items can be found at the reception desks of each of the following University Accommodation Halls: 

  • Grafton Hall
  • O’Rorke Hall
  • Waipārūrū Hall
  • University Hall Towers

Sanitary products for those in need will also be available from the AUSA Student Support Hub, located in AUSA House on 4 Alfred Street, opposite the General Library.
