Otago University's vice-chancellor says the vast majority of students are doing the right thing.

It comes after the Otago Daily Times reports Dunedin Police have slammed an out of control student party last night as "blatant stupidity".

More than 300 people were estimated to be in the backyard and there were no QR codes for people to scan.

It followed two parties in the Castle Street area being added to the locations of interest list yesterday.

Vice-Chancellor David Murdoch told Heather du Plessis-Allan high numbers of students are getting tested.

“And are self-isolating, following the rules for gatherings. I mean, certainly some could do better but the vast majority are doing the right thing.”
