What student support services do you offer?

Both USN and the Student Welfare Organization of Southeast Norway (SSN) have counselors who can help you if you struggle with your studies, or your life. You are not alone.


Study Advisor - closest to you

Do not hesitate to contact your study advisor if you have questions pertaining to your study program. You will find her/his name on the study program page. Your study advisor processes applications for study leave and reduced study progression, explains regulations and helps to device individual study plans, among many other things.

Do you need someone to talk to?

SSN Health offers professional help for those who just need to talk to someone. Sometimes everything feels a little ... rough. There can be times when your energy is low, the motivation is missing and it is hard to concentrate. There may be several explanations. Maybe something unusual happened in your life, or maybe you are just going through a period where everything just feels a little heavier than usual. SSN Health is present on all campuses. The door is open to everyone. Our services are available regardless of whether you need a short talk or help over time. The offer is free of charge and, of course, confidential.

Either you are struggling with a broken heart, feel lonely or wander about choices and big questions, sometimes a talk can make things easier.  Student chaplains have extensive experience in talking with people in different phases of life. No issues are too small or too big.   All campuses: pernille.astrup@usn.no. Drammen: Line.Lindholm@usn.no
