USN is endorsed to become Norway's next university this Spring.

We are approximately 20,000 students and 1,500 staff, spread over eight campuses: Drammen, Vestfold, Kongsberg, Ringerike, , Notodden, Porsgrunn and Rauland.

USN aims to have a regional foundation, and with eight campuses, we have a strong and clear presence in one of Norway’s most exciting and dynamic regions.
