Student IT can help you with any computing questions you may have while studying at the University of Otago. We provide a friendly, helpful service tailored to students – after all, most of our staff are students too! We also offer a number of computer rooms where you can study: some are open 24/7.

Student IT Learning Labs

Do you need to understand more about the software that you are asked to use at Uni?  We can help. We will be running 15 minute labs on the topics below.
These will continue to the end of Semester One. Meet us at the big screen behind the Student IT booth in the Central Library at the times on the table below.

If no one else turns up, you can choose any of the topics below the table … we are very flexible!

  • Student Email

    or whatever other topic you want to know about.
    If these times don’t suit, we can make a time for you when you are free.
