We are committed to your thriving as a student, and facilitate:
Life that happens beyond examinations, lectures and syllabuses is our responsibility. Look for student life on the site For students and you will find activities such as a student trip to Sjoa, our buddy programme, Norwegian Thanksgiving and Thursday waffles.
Call on us
We are here and available for conversation – about any of life’s troubles. We have time, and we guarantee confidentiality. You can come to our office with any of life’s problems, such as challenges in student life, relationships and choices, or thoughts about friendship and love, faith, doubt and God's image.
A crisis is not a prerequisite for contact. Maybe the best approach is a conversation before things get too hard? It is up to you to decide what to talk about. Send an e-mail to Line Heiberg Ringen or Elisabeth Nilsen Aas, knock on our office door or find us in the hallway. You will find our offices as part of the student council's office, close to the atrium.
The chapel is located on the first floor in the extension of the atrium and is the university college's permanent place of devotion and worship. The chapel is also where several prayer groups gather regularly.. You can find information here: For students. In the chapel you can also:
- Light a candle
- Just sit and enjoy quiet time
- Write a prayer request and put in the prayer jar
