Emergency numbers

The phone number in New Zealand for all emergencies is 111. You will be asked which service you require (Fire, Ambulance or Police).

You can call 111 free from cellphones, landlines and phone boxes. You can also call 111 from any mobile with valid cellular service, even if it's not corrected to a carrier, or if it is but has been locked (postpay) or has no available credit (prepay). If you miss-dial and ring 911, 999 or 000 you will likely find this would also connect you to 111, though this is not recommended.

Non-emergencies

For non-emergency calls to the police (for example, when a burglary has already taken place and the burglars are no longer at the scene), call Auckland City District Headquarters on +64 9 302 6400. Or you can go to the city station located at the corner of Cook and Vincent Streets in central Auckland.

Incidents on the University campus

If an incident takes place on the University campus you can telephone University Security on +64 9 373 7599 extension 85000, or dial 85000 directly if you use an internal University telephone.

Medical Emergancies

The Auckland Hostipal has an Emergency Department. Note: this may come at a cost to non-residents.
