Pleasse help me with Visa :(

at 2012 I was offered a place in Australian university and was granted a student visa that expires on 2016 March.
Due to family issue, I could not go and stayed in Auckland.

problem started this week.

one of my relative is very sick and I need to go to Sydney this weekend.

I tried to apply for an ETA but it said I already have a visa expiring 2016 which obviously means the student visa. I asked the university I was accepted to and they were also puzzled about the situation because I e-mailed them that I am applying for a refund because of financial problem I cannot attend the university.

I only have 1 or 2 days before the departure so cancelling my student visa and getting ETA after that is not going to work for me.

So I was just wondering if just using my student visa at the airport would work for me or not or there is a better way to solve this.

I go a reply from the university that when the student cancels their enrolment, the university asks the department to cancel the students visa which they said they did.
So the conclusion they gave me was the department that handles the visa made a mistake of not canceling my visa and told me my student visa is still valid according to VEVO.

Does this mean I can still use my visa?
