950x534 Otago Polytechnic Student Village

New! Otago Polytechnic Student Village

Our brand new, on-campus Student Village will be open to students for the first time in 2018! 

The 231-bed furnished residential village offers fully-catered single rooms (dorms), and self-catered studios (standard or deluxe) and four-bedroom apartments. With its prime location, you will enjoy a short walk to campus whilst still only being minutes from the city centre, giving you the freedom to explore Dunedin's vibrant student culture. 

The Village has been constructed with the environment firmly in mind. Sustainable materials have been used throughout, such as the timber used for the unique structural frame. 

Purpose-built for students, it's the perfect home to enjoy student life to the full within an exciting and supportive community.  

The Otago Polytechnic Student Village is managed by global student accommodation specialist Campus Living Villages who operate in prominent locations around the world.
