Welcome to Alta!

It is said that proximity to everything is what sets the Northern Lights city of Alta apart from other cities. In Alta, there is walking distance from the city center to the university, student accommodation, shops, cinema, water park and nightlife.

Proximity to the surroundings is important, but perhaps more important is the vicinity to your fellow students and the people who live there. You together create a good atmosphere and the great study environment - whether it’s barbecuing outside Nyland student town or at quiz nights at Studenthuset City.

The atmosphere is what makes many students stay longer than planned and settle in Finnmark's largest city. Alta is simply a great city, with fabulous outdoor opportunities either under the northern lights or under the midnight sun. The city's location makes it easy to get out into the countryside, whether it is for short walks, top hikes in the mountains or kayaking trips on the fjord.
