Otago Polytechnic’s doors opened fifty years ago, on 1 February 1966. We’ve come a long way since then. Join us during the year ahead, to help celebrate half a century in education!

Things change in fifty years – and we’re no different. We began as a technical institute, and now we are one of New Zealand’s top providers of hands-on education. It’s our birthday, and you’re invited! We kicked off our 50th celebrations with the official opening of The Hub (H Block) on 2 February 2016 - and we will continue to celebrate with a number of special events and exciting projects over the next 12 months.
