Having a party?

The Proctor's Office is fully supportive of the Good One Party Register

This is a joint initiative with the Health Promotion Agency, University of Otago and the Police for people to register their party online. By registering you are automatically forwarded advice about being a responsible host and what to do should things get out of hand.

Don’t let anyone set/light any fires regardless of whether they are contained in a brazier, etc, as the Otago Regional Council has a regulation banning all fires in Dunedin City. The penalty for this is $300 payable by the residents of the flat.

Keep track of who is attending the party
Try and make sure you know who is attending your party. You are responsible for their behaviour at your place.  Be aware that local thieves and burglars like to party too!

Look after your friends
Take care of your friends and visitors who over-indulge in alcohol.

Warn the neighbours
Let your neighbours know. They are much less likely to get angry at the noise if they know it’s coming.

If things get out of hand…

If, through no fault of your own, things do start to get out of hand consider calling Campus Watch or Police.
