About University of Otago

The University of Otago is New Zealand's oldest university. The university has New Zealand's highest average research quality and in New Zealand is second only to the University of Auckland in the number of A rated academic researchers it employs. It topped the New Zealand Performance Based Research Fund evaluation in 2006.

Otago is known for its student life, particularly its flatting, which is often in old sub-standard houses. The nickname "Scarfie" comes from the habit of wearing a scarf during cold southern winters.

Campus information

It has the facilities, entertainment and variety of larger cities, with a wide range of social, cultural and sporting activities. However, it is small enough to be friendly, uncrowded and safe.

The University of Otago campus is situated in the centre of Dunedin, a city offering the best of both worlds to students.
