We're here for you. While we know your decision to attend Otago will have been made carefully, we understand that it's still a transition. You're not alone – our warm, welcoming and inclusive community is right there with you!

We have proudly been supporting students to achieve their academic and personal goals since 1945. We understand the challenges you'll face, and we'll be there to help you navigate. You've got this, and we've got you!

Our residents are known for making the most of the incredible opportunities the collegiate experience affords, including engagement in robust academic tutorials and participation in sports, music, cultural events and service. We're also proud that our students feel they can come and talk to us when things are tough – we're here to listen, and to help you figure out the best way forward.

Carrington College is owned by the University of Otago and operated by the Campus and Collegiate Life Services Division as part of the Operations Group. Carrington College is managed by the Warden and their team.
