Key Contacts for Distance Students

Main entrance to the University at night

The University of Otago is a national university with a physical presence in five main centres throughout New Zealand. Distance learning programmes can emanate from any one of these centres.

When you are in the vicinity of a University of Otago campus, feel welcome to call in and meet staff involved with your course and, where appropriate, to access the teaching and library facilities and support services.

Although many of you may never visit the Dunedin campus, you will have contact with several Dunedin-based staff who help to provide essential services for all distance learning students.

Listed below for your easy reference are contact details for all campuses.
