Help make our University and the world a more sustainable and healthier place

Boldly sustainable, together

We connect student learning, operational practice and research to maximise the impact of our work.

We bring Otago's sustainability commitment to life with the Sustainability Strategic Framework.

We celebrate students and staff making an effort to reduce their impact and drive positive change across all campuses.

Get amongst it!

A new initiative in 2021, you will the opportunity to live in a “Sustainable flat” where your mates care about the environment, where you can learn about living more sustainably, and be part of research into how students can have a positive impact.

If you got amongst it with “Green your Scene” this year the sustainability neighbourhood is an option to stay amongst it while flatting.

How do I get a place?
