University of Otago

Historic Building in Dunedin

Founded in 1869, the University of Otago is New Zealand's oldest. Today the university is home to some 18,000 students, and is well worth a wander, with many magnificent bluestone buildings to admire. The historic heart – bounded by Leith, St David and Castle Sts – is the most photogenic part of the campus. Check the university website for a self-guided tour map.
