Campus tours  

Otago Polytechnic operates tours of the Dunedin, Central Otago and Auckland Campuses upon request.  

Tours start with a warm welcome from an Otago Polytechnic representative, followed by a walk around campus, a visit to the schools, classrooms and some of our impressive facilities. The tour takes approximately one hour.

When booking, please specify the area of study you are interested in; this will enable us to customise your tour.
