About us

Embracing inclusivity and manaakitanga, Student Health Services (SHS) engages with all students and the diverse university community to support health and well-being; enabling students to reach their full potential and thrive during their Otago experience.

SHS is centrally located on campus in a purpose built facility. We are a team of nurses, general practitioners, mental health and well-being clinicians and administrative staff.

We are a team of qualified professionals providing high quality health care to students of the University of Otago.

We provide inclusive, safe, compassionate and confidential primary health care in an environment of mutual responsibility and respect.


Sustainability at Otago

Student Health is committed to supporting sustainability. We have a dedicated sustainability team who work hard to implement ideas from both staff and students.

We are very excited to be a part of the University of Otago’s Green Impact Programme and look forward to working with the wider team. As of October 2020, we have achieved Kōwhai status.
