Otago students based away from Dunedin
Students based out of Dunedin do not pay the Student Services Fee.
Your Individual departments should have given you the options available to you for health care while you are studying outside of Dunedin.
If you are in Dunedin for semester breaks we will see you, however you will be charged a higher consultation fee as you have not paid the student services fee.
What if I am a Student and a University Staff Member?
If you are a student and employed by the University and work over 18.75 hours per week you are not eligible to attend Student Health.
Students from other New Zealand universities
Student Health will see students of other NZ Universities on an occasional or exceptional basis. Availability of service in these situations will be determined on a case-by-case basis. Students are advised to ring Student Health (0800 479 821) to check availability of service.
Consultation fees will differ to the standard rates for Otago students.
Can my family use Student Health?
As our resources are limited we can only provide primary health care services to students enrolled at the University who have paid their student services fee.
