Construction crew in residence

Work continues on the construction of Te Rangi Hiroa College  at the corner of Albany and Forth Sts in Dunedin recently.

The 450-bed hall of residence will replace the existing 125-bed hall of the same name in Castle St, which sits on land earmarked for the new Dunedin Hospital.

The new hall of residence will comprise seven levels spread over four wings. It is named after Te Rangi Hiroa (Sir Peter Buck), who was the university’s first Maori graduate.

The hall is on track to open in the second semester of 2023.
