Toroa is the perfect base for studying at Otago. It’s always warm, close to campus and town, and the interconnected apartment style accommodation, linked up with our common room and facilities, helps you make close friends from the day you move in.
Our suites give you the freedom of independence and a little taste of life after College, while still having the support of our Junior Tutors (formerly Residential Assistants) and onsite staff if you’ve got questions or just need some guidance while you’re away from home
Toroa also has all the academic support you need. Our tutorials are a huge help, and you’ll learn from experienced students and staff who can help you fully understand what you need to know and do to get that extra grade.
When study is done for the day, it’s playtime! Our social events make sure you get to relax and have a good time so you get the right balance. We believe in helping you make the most of your independence, and our great mix of staff will help you out whenever you need to ensure your first year at Otago is the best time of your life with new mates in your new city.
We know that your academic achievement needs to be balanced with some social activities, and we've got both covered!
As part of our academic and social activity programme we are committed to taking part in the Univeristy Green Your Scene programme.
