The Proctor's Office is responsible for a number of roles throughout the University with the emphasis on safety of students and staff, and maintaining a healthy learning environment for all.

One of the Proctor's main roles is to work closely with the police and local authorities in fostering the unique town/gown relationship which exists in Dunedin as it relates to student behaviour. Since the Proctor is responsible for managing the student Code of Conduct, students who get up to mischief around the city are likely to end up before the Proctor.

The Proctor's Office is responsible for the security of all plant and buildings and allowing access to teaching buildings.

The Proctor operates an "open door" policy and welcomes enquiries, questions, and requests for information and advice on all matters relating to their area of responsibility (and a few that are not!)

The Proctor's Office, Campus Watch, and the Campus Cop are located in the St David Street Lecture Theatre complex. Entrance is directly from St David Street on the north side of the building (opposite the Centre for Innovation).
