Buddy Programme

The buddy week in Kongsberg is a meeting place for new students where they can get to know the city, each other and meet existing students in Kongsberg. During the week there will be a variety of activities and events. There will be something for everyone, whether you like to stay up all night or take it a little more easy. We wish all new students in Kongsberg welcome!

More information about the buddy programme will be posted on Facebook.

Each of USNs campuses have their own Facebook group where students can post information and ask questions. Check out the campus Kongsberg Facebook group.
