accomodation in dunedin

by rslynn07 Online Now Jan 31, 2007 at 2:15 AM

Hi there

My niece (!!) is off to start her Foundation Year at University of Otago this February. I will be there with her for a month before flying back home.

The catch is that while she's a Malaysian, she was born in NZ and is considered by the university as a "local" student and therefore accomodation at the university is not guaranteed. Considering that neither one of us have ever been in NZ (except for her in her baby days), could someone advice us on temporary accomodation for both of us and then permanent accomodation for her alone? Would be great if it's within walking distance from the campus. (Actually I have no idea where exactly the University is located).

Also, what would be considered reasonable rates?

Thanks so much in advance! :)
