Carrington creates the optimal balance between study success and having a great time. Our community is serious about success and working hard to achieve your goals – an absolute necessity if you want to gain entry to a competitive-entry course like Law, Medicine, or a postgraduate degree!
Wake up to the sound of native birds who thrive on the three hectares of our College grounds – a peaceful oasis amongst the hectic Otago student quarter! Our outdoor spaces are ideal for study, catching up with friends, or just taking a moment to enjoy nature. Clear your head before hitting the books!
Carrington residents share a passion for learning and a deep-seated desire to succeed. Our tutorial programme provides exceptional academic support throughout the year, with high attendance at every session!
A great social experience!
While working hard academically is a big part of what we do, we know how important it is to let loose and have a laugh! Carrington boasts a lively extracurricular calendar which appeals to a broad range of interests, including: sports, music, cultural events, our annual College Ball, Stuart Shield competitions against our sister College (Arana) and service and sustainability initiatives.
