Students behaving badly may not be the most startling piece of news, but the extent of it in Dunedin this year is surprising many.

St Patrick's Day mayhem in the city saw two party-goers taken to hospital in serious condition after tumbling off a roof and balcony respectively.

Police have described thousands of young people decked out in green, many intoxicated, littering the streets and keeping officers busy.
