What kind of sport activities can I attend?

There’s no reason to stay indoors when you're studying in Norway. There are fun things to do, whether you are visiting the coast, the mountains, or somewhere in between. Check out The Norwegian Trekking association for information on hikes near your campus. The Student Welfare Organisation runs two sports centers - one at Campus Vestfold and one in Drammen.There are several subgroups of the student community who are doing sports at almost all campuses. The groups will inform students about their offerings each semester. And, not at least: ASK YOUR BUDDIES at the semester start!
