Online Referenda and Student Forums
Online referenda are one of the many ways you can have your say through OUSA. Whether it's about university policy or a wider issue, you can change OUSA's stance.
Online referenda are used to guide OUSA policy; it's a direct online vote allowing every University of Otago student to have their say.
Student forums provide an opportunity for students to discuss the questions that will be in the Online Rerenda. You can also submit your own questions/motions for online referenda. For example, if you think OUSA should support or oppose the Stadium, you can submit a referendum question so that students can have a say.
