There are a number of students that attend the University of Otago who enjoy the outdoors and the great hunting opportunities located only a few hours away. In the past the storage of firearms has been an issue for students that have arrived in Dunedin.
Approved safe storage facility for firearms
In order to provide them with a safe and secure location, the Proctor’s Office has a Police approved firearm storage facility. This is for “A” category firearms only.
Firearms must be personally brought into the Campus Watch office for storage. Courier delivery will not be accepted.
Firearms licence required
Students are required to produce their firearms licence when dropping off or uplifting their firearms.
Storage cost and access to the firearms
The cost per year is $20 with students able to uplift their stored firearms 24/7, provided 24 hour prior notification is received.
