Campus staff now out of temporary premises

The first group of staff from Otago University's Christchurch campus move back into their main building at Christchurch hospital on Friday after 21 months in temporary premises.

The site was closed after the earthquake in February 2011 and has since been strengthened to 120% of the new building standard.

The Dean of Otago University in Christchurch, Professor Peter Joyce, says it will be wonderful for staff to return to refurbished laboratories and offices after working from a range of locations, including a warehouse.
