Arrival and Directions
When will you arrive in Bergen, and where do you need to go? And what about student housing, late arrival and important dates during semester startup?
Get involved and join one of Bergen's more than 100 student organisations and activities! Some might also be especially relevant for international students.
Find out what we offer students in Bergen in terms of housing, cafeterias, training, sports and health services, as well as information on student life and safety.
Enjoy Norwegian Nature
Students in Bergen live close to nature. Make sure to enjoy it and be safe at the same time. The Norwegian Mountain Code (called "Fjellvettreglene" in Norwegian) is a collection of nine simple rules, that will help you stay safe while hiking.
