Room Bookings

Otago University and Otago Polytech students can enjoy free room hire at our Centre! Our facilities are open to all students, not just OUSA-affiliated clubs. Conveniently located near campus, our rooms are perfect for exercising during a study break, finding a quiet space for hobbies, or meeting with a study group. We offer study/meeting rooms, dance/exercise rooms, and music rooms. Rooms can be booked for up to 2 hours per day, up to 2 weeks in advance. For longer bookings, please see the information below.

How to Book a Room:

Commercial Room Bookings:

We also accommodate "commercial" bookings, including University departments, Non-profits, and individuals using our facilities for non-personal purposes.

These requests are evaluated on a case-by-case basis by our Clubs and Societies Centre Management (please email our Reception and Centre Services Coordinator). Commercial room hire incurs charges, ranging from $25 to $75 per hour, based on room size.
