There's something about this place. Far from the capital, but still close to world-leading research and education, fantastic nature, and a large student and work environment. Together we make things happen and together we develop ourselves, each other, and the world. We all have our place in the north.
UiT shall facilitate good academic and social meeting places. Meeting places that should be open, inclusive, safe, and provide good experiences. We encourage our students to use the available facilities on campus, take the initiative, and keep in touch with their fellow students, both academically and socially within the current infection control rules. Your contribution is essential ♥
Here you will find an overview of which coffee bars and canteens are open on our campus.
