FAQ s

If you can only attend one day, then Monday is the best day with the most presentations. However, many people like to attend both days so they have enough time to get a feel for the campus and city, attend the presentations they want, and have plenty of time to talk to staff at the Expo.

There will be several information tents on campus during Open Days, where you can collect programmes and maps, gather for tours, and ask questions.

There is limited parking around the university on a week day. We recommend you stay within walking distance or use public transport to get to campus.

This is the University of Otago’s only Open Day event this year.

However, you can always contact our Schools’ Liaison team to arrange a guided tour of the Dunedin campus at either 10:30am or 1pm weekdays, or a self-guided tour.
