UO Clocktower

University of Otago Clocktower. NZ

Muscular edifice
From Victorian times
It’s the style we know

The University of Otago Registry Building, also known as the Clocktower Building, is a Victorian and later structure in the city of Dunedin, New Zealand. It stands next to the banks of the Water of Leith and is constructed from contrasting dark Leith Valley basalt and Oamaru stone, with a foundation of Port Chalmers breccia. The building houses the administrative centre of the university, and the office of the Vice-Chancellor. It has a Category I listing with the New Zealand Historic Places Trust. ~ Bernard
