We offer a range of services to students in the Locals programme as a way of ensuring you receive the support during your first year at the University of Otago. This support includes Orientation week events, academic support, social events and sporting events. There are also a dedicated group of University staff, OUSA and senior University students from different areas within the University who are willing to support your needs  during your study.

As this programme is designed to provided services for the students we encourage you as students to come forward with suggestions on what you services you would like. Because of this we have been able to grow the programme to this stage, and with your continued input we will be ale to grow the programme further.

You can contact a Local Leader, Mentor, or the Programme Coordinator at any stage with any suggestions. Or feel free to start a discussion on our Facebook page.
