Is there a student association in Vestfold?

Vestfold Student Association is a voluntary organisation at USN that organises sporting, cultural and social activities for students at Vestfold Campus. We have our own premises in the university at Vestfold Campus (C1-61).

The executive board of Vestfold Student Association

The Student Association has an executive board that keeps the wheels running, but relies on the work contributed by volunteers. On Thursdays we arrange student pubs or quizzes on the pier in Tønsberg. We hold a start of studies festival at Vestfold Campus in the first week of the start of studies, to give students a kick-start to the new academic year, with concerts, stand-up shows and lots of fun. During the year we also hold our own Hemsedal trip, DataLAN and student cruise, to name just a few events. We also have our own choir, the Bakkenteigen Student Choir, which rehearses on a fixed day of the week.


Sports are very important for students, and we offer a wide range of sports clubs, including soccer, handball, volleyball, climbing, floorball and rowing. Most training takes place at the indoor sports centre at Vestfold Campus, which has modern facilities with a large court and a climbing wall.


Vestfold Student Association requires membership to join our sports clubs, choirs and social groups. This costs NOK 300 during the university year and NOK 200 for half a year. There are many good benefits for members, such as free or reduced-price tickets for our events, and discounts on several of our events, besides discounts at selected sports shops, restaurants, etc. At the student pub and quiz, food and beverages at very attractive prices are available to members. Check out our websites or follow us on Facebook to take advantage of all the events and great deals.

We also need volunteer assistance for our events. As a volunteer you will get your own good deals.
