Planet Media Dunedin Limited which runs Critic magazine and Radio One, owes the university's students' association about $250,000.

A spokesperson for the association said the company had been in debt for a number of years but the situation had worsened and it had been forced to make a tough call.

The students' association will conduct a review of the student media company.
