The Student Services Fee is a compulsory fee charged to help fund a range of support services available to all students, such as:
- Gym and recreation activities
- Careers advice
- Internet access on campus for your personal use
- Campus events
- Financial advice
- Pastoral care, etc.
Legislation requires that all money collected by the University of Otago from the Fee is spent on student services.
The University and OUSA want to work together with you to determine how to provide the right services to enhance your student experience. We seek and value your input to make the best decisions on how to spend the money collected from your Fee.
If you are eligible for fees-free study at Otago, the Student Services Fee is included.
