We want Otago to have the most inclusive campus in Aotearoa, and the world. We recognise that often your student years are ones where you are exploring your identities.

Our Queer Support Coordinator offers one-on-one support including; confidential chats, peer support, events and education for staff and students. We also offer resources, groups, and training/professional development to staff and students.


Every year OUSA Queer Support works with an incredibly diverse group of student volunteers. We have a variety of volunteer opportunities including:

  • Queer Peer Support
  • Diversity Week working group
  • Events – Queerest Tea Party
  • Queer Resource Library 
  • Social Media 
  • Workshop co-facilitation
