Entry into Unipol is free for University of Otago and Otago Polytechnic students on presentation of a valid student ID card* (the previous year's ID card can be used to access Unipol until Orientation Week of the current year). Unipol facilities are also available for use by University of Otago and Otago Polytechnic staff with a discounted Unipol membership. Anybody can use Unipol facilities by paying a casual entry fee or buying a public membership.
*New international students who are yet to attend an International Orientation Seminar can contact UNIPOL about access.
If you forget to bring your student/staff ID card you'll need to pay the casual fee to gain access. However, you're entitled to a refund if you return with the signed receipt and your ID card within seven days.
