On-Site Staff for Oslo, Norway
The Oslo program is administered in the US by the USAC Central Office. At the host university, the staff of the Student international office will answer questions about student housing and other practical matters, provide the mandatory orientation, assist with class registration, and arrange the special events program. The staff at the host university also do a wonderful job at keeping students from abroad informed about events on campus and in the community, allowing them to further immerse into Norwegian culture.
In addition to the outstanding support available from the host university, USAC has a part-time Resident Director who is also available to USAC students. The Resident Director helps you adjust to life in Oslo, troubleshoots issues, and helps you understand the host university and Norwegian education system. During the first few days of the term they will host a USAC orientation. The Resident Director will also organize group events for USAC students, and help keep you informed of what’s going on in the city. They are also available for one-on-one meetings throughout the semester.
