Student life at Oslo New University College
ONUC is not just a place of learning; it's a warm and inclusive community that fosters connections between fellow students and dedicated lecturers.
Campus life at Oslo New University College
Campus Lovisenberg (the name of the extended campus area) is part of an inspiring college environment, with both Norwegian and international students.
At campus you'll find lush green parks perfect for outdoor lunches and hanging out. There's a big cafeteria for lunch and a cozy café serving great coffee. The library provides a quiet space for study, and there are plenty of places to socialize with your fellow students.
Extracurricular seminars and social events are organised throughout the semester. This includes Kick-off-days with the “Buddy System”, special treats at the Loft every Wednesday, inspiring guest lectures, soccer cup, quiz nights, Halloween, student parties and christmas lunch.
The Loft is the hub of activity
The Loft is the heart of campus life, hosting a variety of events, both social and academic. Join in for Wednesday snacks, read, or play board games with your peers. And don't miss the popular "midday talks" which are interesting short talks on popular topics ranging from self development tips, topics from the news, and research our academic staff works on, all presented in an easily understandable way.
Walking distance to both the city and student housing
After a day of studying, you're just a short stroll away from the tranquil St. Hans Park or an easy reach of trendy Oslo neighbourhoods like Bislett and Grünerløkka.
Most student residences in Oslo are also conveniently located near the Oslo New University College.
Most satisfied students in Norway
At Oslo University College, we take pride in having some of the most satisfied students in the country. Norway’s annual Student Barometer satisfaction survey consistently ranks ONH at the top, and it's not just about academics – our social environment is equally important.

You can join existing clubs and initiatives, participate in a wide range of social activities, including weekly events, Wednesday coffee sessions, yoga, and midday talks. Our culture promotes interaction between students and lecturers, whose open office doors reflect our commitment to your success.
And did you know there is a student run social comitte at ONUC organising social activities for all students at ONUC?
Arriving in Oslo, the students and staff at Oslo New University College were incredibly welcoming. I really appreciated being constantly invited to events with other students, and truly feeling like I was a member of the student body. I also had extra time to explore Oslo, Norway, and other European countries.
