Providing more support for students at the University of
Otago's ''satellite'' campuses and improving Dunedin student
rental accommodation were two key priorities, student leader
Francisco Hernandez said this week.
Mr Hernandez, president of the Otago University Students'
Association, outlined his priorities after being invited to
introduce himself at this week's University Council meeting,
the first for the year.
The association was working with the Dunedin City Council as
part of its efforts to improve the quality of student rental
accommodation in the city, he told the council.
Mr Hernandez said in an interview that another of his main
priorities was to improve support for association members who
were studying at the university's ''satellite'' campuses in
Invercargill, Christchurch and Wellington.
The association did not receive funding from the university
to support students at those other campuses and he was keen
to improve support for them.
