From the curious to the committed, more than 170 visitors enjoyed a tour of Otago Polytechnic’s Student Village at the weekend.
“We had a mixture of prospective students and their families, and members of the public who were just curious to take a look around,” Dr Emilie Crossley, Liaison Advisor, Learner Services, says.
“Visitors commented that the rooms were really spacious, the building had great character with the exposed timber, and about how convenient its location was being so close to campus."
Max Sims, Community Manager, Otago Polytechnic Student Village, enjoyed the chance to meet residents (and their parents) from near and far, including from Timaru, Alexandra and Manawatu.
“All of the residents expressed that they were really excited by how it was looking and couldn’t wait to get into it and meet everybody at OPSV.”
The brand-new, on-campus Student Village will be open to students for the first time in 2018.
Just a short walk from campus and the city centre, the purpose-built 231-bed furnished residential village offers fully-catered single rooms (dorms), self-catered studios (standard or deluxe) and four-bedroom apartments.
Constructed with the environment firmly in mind, the Student Village uses sustainable materials throughout, including the timber within its unique structural frame.
