Make use of our space and catering services to deliver an exceptional experience to your guests at your event.
We have The Hub, teaching spaces and the Sargood Centre available for event bookings. Requests for the use of Otago Polytechnic facilities by users external to Otago Polytechnic are required to be approved prior to use.

It has the capacity to hold approximately 200 people. Catering for events can be ordered through our OP functions team.
Whilst the space is available to book consideration of the impact on students and staff during operating hours is taken into account. The Hub is available for external functions out of hours and during the weekends.
