Otago Disabled Students Association

Membership registration

Inclusivity, accessibility, advocacy and allyship is ODSA's pūmanawa, what ODSA's heart beats for.

Otago Disabled Students’ Association (ODSA) is a whānau made of tauira (students) from both the University of Otago and Otago Polytechnic and we'd love for you to join the mahitahi (working as one).

Members may either identify as a disabled or impaired student themselves or be an ally of the disabled community. Disability reflects the interaction between an individual's impairment and the barriers of their environment. This includes, but is not limited to, physical impairment, mental health and psychological conditions, learning and/or sensory forms of impairment, neurodiversity, chronic illness, individuals within the Deaf community and beyond.
