about us

OUSA Student Support is here for anything life can throw at you! 

Be it questions or concerns related to academics, flatting, finances, wellbeing or safety; or just a general chat to someone who gets it, the professional team at Student Support are here and ready to help!  

Student Support is available to all students enrolled at the University of Otago free of charge. Services are confidential and no appointment is necessary. We are independent from the university, and have a unique team of highly trained professionals, but the kind of highly trained professionals who still understand everything about student life.  

The team work together with you proactively and effectively to find solutions to support you. We are not just an information service and go beyond just answers. 

OUSA Student Support is also dedicated to making Otago the most inclusive campus in NZ. Our Queer Support services include advice, support, advocacy, resources and more, our dedicated Queer Support Coordinator is here to help you with anything related to gender or sexuality.
