OUSA Starters Bar Staff

The Otago University Students’ Association (OUSA) has been around for 128 years and still going strong! We are a passionate group of people providing services to the students of the University of Otago, ensuring they have the best experience possible while studying here.

Our services include famous events such as Orientation and the Hyde Street Party; Recreation services and club support; our Student Support Centre provides advocacy services; Critic magazine and our radio station, Radio One 91FM.

Have you heard of the Dunedin Craft Beer and Food Festival? - that’s us too.

In November 2018 we purchased one of the last remaining bars in the University precinct, ‘Starters’. Starters had been a scarfies favourite for generations and we aim to reinvigorate the bar as a safe environment and eventful venue for students and the local community.
