Learning is extended into the field of applied research, contributing to professional and community networks nationally and internationally.

Explore our Campuses

We have three beautiful Otago campuses. Otepoti (Dunedin) is home to our main campus, while Cromwell and Wananka host our regional campuses. We also have an international campus in Auckland.

Dunedin Campus

The student capital of New Zealand and one of the country’s best centres of learning. Otepoti (Dunedin) is a city that revolves around you – a safe and friendly place to study. Our Dunedin campus is located in the heart of 'student-ville' and '10 minutes from anywhere' as locals would say.

An environment that revolves around you

Dunedin is home to about 25,000 students – approximately 20% of the city’s population – giving an energetic student culture, yet a highly regarded study experience, which welcomes you with open arms.

Surround yourself with like-minded students, all starting their study journey just like you. Make new friends, find new hobbies, and enjoy the student experience our campuses have to offer.

Dunedin is New Zealand's incubator for IT, entrepreneurship, and fashion. The city’s warehouse precinct is attracting creatives, engineers, IT start ups and small businesses, so it makes sense to study here.

Our Forth Street campus

Our Dunedin Campus is located on Forth street, which is right in the heart of the student district – yet a 10 minute walk to the city centre. We have bright open spaces, modern facilities and our own on campus cafes, food trucks and restaurant.

Study spaces and specialised facilities

On campus you’ll find study rooms, training facilities, classrooms, libraries and student support services, along with all the necessities for a successful study experience.

Our students get access to specialised study facilities too, art barns, nursing suites, gyms and sports fields, game design studios and edible living gardens, it's all on campus. There’s also free wi-fi and computer labs across campus there for you to make the most out of your study experience. Explore more facilities and services
