For students

Why choose Harstad?

Former Harstad University College was established in 1983 and merged with UiT The Arctic University of Norway in January 2016. UiT Harstad has approximately 1500 students and a staff around 140.

Our campus offers a friendly and intimate atmosphere. It is easy to get to know other students as well as staff members, and the university is characterized by a high level of student activity.

Our modern facilities accommodate most of the activities under one roof, centrally and beautifully located close to the city centre and the harbour.
