Accommodation

Exchange students are guaranteed student accommodation, which is managed by The Student Association of Agder. A number of accommodation options are available, and application is made upon acceptance by the University of Agder.

Student Life and Surroundings

Exchange students at the University of Agder enjoy a wide variety of opportunities to make friends, get involved on campus, and experience the culture of Norway and the rest of Europe. Living in student accommodation, joining the Erasmus Student Network, an on-campus student organization for international students, and participating in the Buddy Programme of Norwegian and international students provides exchange students with opportunities to make connections and get involved on campus.  The University of Agder has an active campus life, with a festival at the start of each semester and a variety of student activities.

The Agder region is the sunniest in Norway, and the costal location results in a milder climate than elsewhere in the country. The University of Agder’s main campus is in Kristiansand, a city of 80,000 on the southern coast of Norway. Kristiansand has a vibrant city center with cafés, shopping, and festivals, and the region also offers a variety of outdoor recreation activities.

Exchange students can also take advantage of the opportunity to visit destinations elsewhere in Norway and Europe.  Kristiansand is connected by direct flights to a variety of European cities and is also on ferry, bus, and train networks, allowing students the opportunity to easily visit other European destinations during their time abroad.
