Activities for Oslo, Norway
To help acquaint new students with campus life, the Peer Support Program organizes Buddy Groups. All new international students may join these Buddy Groups which each consist of 15-20 international students and a buddy. Buddies are senior students who will show you around campus, introduce you to the social life at the university, and answer practical questions. Joining a Buddy Group is an excellent opportunity to make new friends from your first day at the university. The first few weeks of the semester are filled with activities designed especially for Buddy Groups. More information is provided in the information package upon arrival on how to take advantage of this instant social and academic network on campus. Join in—we guarantee you’ll have a lot of fun.
Due to the excellent public transportation, you are never far away from popular destinations in Oslo. There are outdoor activities year round that keep students busy during their time abroad. Despite its location on a map, Oslo enjoys a mild coastal climate, which ranges from beach weather in the summer, and permits temperatures cold enough for cross country skiing in the winter. Along with the many clubs and events students organize throughout the year on campus, Oslo is also a city complete with enthralling landscapes and boundless opportunity for adventure.
