Your Pacific Home and Family While at Otago
As a student of Pacific descent, you will be well supported when you arrive here at Otago. The University welcomes the diversity Pacific people bring to Otago and supports its Pacific students through a range of networks and support systems.
Coordinating all of the support services available to Pacific students is the Pacific Islands Centre, your home away from home while at University. You will be welcomed as a family member and we will make sure that you return to your family and community with your mission accomplished.
The Centre was established solely for supporting Pacific students, their families and communities. We are here to assist you in your pursuit of knowledge and to make your journey a smooth and an enjoyable one.
