Te Pā Tauira - Otago Polytechnic Student Village

Our brand new, on-campus Student Village opened on 11 February, 2018 and our first intake of residents are loving it

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

Te Pā Tauira is managed by global student accommodation specialist Campus Living Villages who operate in prominent locations around the world. 

We also have rooms available for second semester.
