Supporting first year students living locally: flatting, boarding, or living at home

The Locals programme provides academic support, social and volunteering opportunities to first year students at the University of Otago who are living at home, flatting, or boarding. We are the biggest student community on campus with a quarter of all first year students being Locals.
