Contact Alumni


Your Information

Login or register to view and edit your information 

If there is someone from your time at Otago you've lost touch with but would like to contact we provide a number of ways for you to get in touch.

As a registered member of Your Otago Link you are able to search the Alumni Directory. If the person you are looking for has opted to make their contact details available to signed-in members then you can contact them directly.

If the person you are searching for has chosen to keep their contact details private or you are unable to find them on the Alumni Directory the Development and Alumni Relations Office may be able to help you. The information held in the Alumni database is confidential under the New Zealand Privacy Act, so cannot be given out. However, we are able to pass your request on to the person or people you're trying to find, provided we have their current contact information. The person will then respond to you directly (or not), at his or her own discretion.

If you would like us to contact someone on your behalf please email, including your name, postal address and a message for us to forward to them. Please provide us with as much information as you can about the person you're looking for: it will help us to forward the message to the right address. As there are people in our records who share the same name, details such as years at Otago, courses studied, even middle initials, can help us get in touch with the right person - which may also make a difference to whether or not you receive a reply. Please note that in general we do not hold contact details for former staff members of the University.

Scarfie Notes

Perpetual Scarfie

Attended lecture. Still uninformed, but on a higher level.

Choosing a flat up all those steps was a great idea until I had to shift my furniture.

Did you know the Richardson Building won an architectural award for modernism in 1983?

Double glazing installed in Dundas St flat. Students protest against gentrification.

Dunedin’s summer always occurs during exams.

Fish & chips contain all the important food groups: fat, salt, starch and crunchy bits.

I have located the missing tutorial notes. ALL IS WELL!

Icecream tastes so much better in Woodhaugh Garden.

It’s wonderful how Postgraduates reclaim the library between semesters.

Leith Street is the classy alternative to Castle Street.

My flat doesn’t have a fridge. Superfluous.

My lecturer thinks an hour of reading per night is reasonable. So do the other seven.

My new student ID card makes me look bright orange like Tom Jones. Apparently it’s not unusual.

North East Valley – it’s not just a place, it’s a lifestyle.

Stay warm with stripy thermal underwear. The stripes rub together to create heat friction.

Take a minute to read the graffiti on a library desk.

The Archway lecture theatre spins around and throws you out in the wrong direction!

World-leading Science faculty but still no cure for the Fresher Flu!
