Just a short stroll north of the University of Otago central campus you will find a unique residential college with outstanding facilities, amazing ambiance, diverse events and activities and exceptional residents. Established in 2000, Caroline Freeman College mixes modern living with a timeless collegiate atmosphere.

Living in a diverse, cosmopolitan mix of people provides for a fantastic range of academic and social opportunities. Our student population comes from throughout the country and around the world. With 214 residents we are small enough to be closely-knit but big enough to have a wide variety of people and interests. We are well-renowned for being inclusive, diverse, supportive, engaged and incredibly friendly. Our residents are justifiably proud to be “Caroline Freemanites”.
