The parents of a University of Otago student who died at a flat party last year will talk to students on campus tomorrow and sign a charter described as a commitment to enhance the safety of the student community in North Dunedin.

The Sophia Charter is named after Sophia Crestani, who was a second-year student at the university last year.

Miss Crestani (19) died in October when she was caught in a stairwell pile-up at a flat known as The Manor, in Dundas St.

Her parents, Bede Crestani and Elspeth McMillan, will have a discussion with students from 5pm.

They will then be part of a ceremony at 6.30pm, signing a charter, alongside representatives from the university, Dunedin City Council, Otago University Students’ Association, police, Fire and Emergency NZ and Otago Property Investors Association.
