Student Ombudsman
Student Ombudsman is an independent aid person who provides students at UiT help and guidance in matters relating to their study situation.

Student counseling and care
If you want to talk to someone about matters not directly concerning disciplinary or administrative issues, there are separate guidance services that can help you with this.

We offer help and support to resolve personal problems that can make student life more difficult. If together we find that our help is not sufficient as the only offer, we help to arrange contact with other authorities. The offer is not a substitute for the public health system, but a supplement to meet students' special needs.
