Excellent reviews in looking after students.

Studholme College has been looking after student residents since 1915 and our reputation as being the friendliest College, is famed throughout the University of Otago. Built around its original homestead dwelling, surrounded by a beautiful garden and within a 5 minute stroll from University, makes Studholme one of the sought after Colleges by students. Our students are being encouraged to be themselves, work hard, have fun and keep themselves balanced as they negotiate an exciting year. 

Great atmosphere

Piggy back rides

Making friends is both exciting and scary but within our smaller community it seems easier. Our staff are great people and they set the scene by learning your names long before you arrive. We value being part of a family, strong sense of care for each other and our community. Our students become our Studholme family not only while they are with us, but long after they have graduated.
