University of Otago is one of the best universities in the world. It is a prestigious architectural building surrounded by beautiful gardens.

Lovely grounds and buildings to walk around and enjoy the uni feel. A GREAT place to get a coffee and a donut at the Hussey & Laredo coffee caravan.

The University of Otago is New Zealand's oldest university, founded in the 1860's. The beautiful bluestone architecture of the Clock Tower is typical of the time period and it is a striking feature of the campus. The grounds are shady and inviting, with a crystal clear stream running through it. We even saw trout and an eel in the stream! What a gorgeous campus.

We visted the University of Otago in summer, so there were no students. It is a picturesque campus, said to be the NZ equivilent of Oxford. It it the oldest University in NZ. Otago has an active student culture. It is ratred acadxemically as one of News Zealand's top universities. THe Water of Leith flows thrrough the cxampus.

Our New Zealand guide recommended to our Ohio State University Alum. Assoc. group that we visit the University of Otago. All thirty of us truly appreciated the beauty of this campus and enjoyed visiting the bookstore with its helpful staff.

We were on a hop on hop off tour and walk around the campus. It has new and old buildings, quite the contrast. A pleasant place to be.

After visiting Dunedin time and time again over the years, for the first time ever I wandered through the University campus. If you are visiting the city I highly recommended doing so. Evokes a historic European uni or Ivy League college!

A very quiet and pretty place to visit when school was out. Not much open, but very pretty grounds with some very beautiful buildings.
