Is there a student association in Kongsberg?

Kongsberg Student Association (Sik) is a voluntary organisation at Kongsberg Campus and the Tinius Olsen Technical College. Sik organises cultural and social activities for the students.

You have to become a member in order to join our sports clubs and social groups in Kongsberg. We had around 200 members in 2015. The membership fee is NOK 400 for a full academic year. There are many different membership benefits, including lower prices for events under our own auspices, and various discounts from private operators in Kongsberg. We are working continuously to improve offers to our members.

The association has its own executive board who are responsible for all sub-groups, and is the highest student body for social activities outside the university. In addition to Trimius, we have several sub-committees:

  • The Louis committee – responsible for the students’ own nightspot, Louis, and the main organiser of such activities as pubs, quizzes, theme parties, game nights, beer pong tournaments and film/soccer game events. We also rent out premises for private events.
  • The buddy committee – plans and holds a buddy week in collaboration with the university and student parliament.
  • The gala committee – organises the annual winter ball at the start of the year.
  • Hemsedal – organises the annual January trip to Hemsedal

The executive board is also working continuously to achieve better deals and come up with new activities. If you have an idea for an activity, or you wish to contribute, please get in touch with us.

Pub & Quiz

At the Louis student pub, the student association organises pub nights, game nights, themed parties and other events – in its own premises in the city centre, and in cooperation with private operators. We make sure that our members get attractive student prices.
