The student advisory is an offer open to all students at Nord University, no matter how small the issue.

Counselling service

In the course of your studies, you can experience situations that can be difficult to deal with on your own. At these times, you can come to the student counsellor with any questions or issues you might have.

These can be, for example:

  • Personal challenges such as relationship difficulties, heartbreak, social stress and anxiety
  • Study-related difficulties related to motivation, delays, concentration problems, exam anxiety or time management
  • Economic issues such as student loans, debt and public benefits
  • Other challenges like substance abuse, eating disorders, anxiety and depression

This service is free.
We guarantee discretion.
In necessary cases, we offer a short term psycholgist service.

University Chaplain

Need to talk about difficult experiences, perhaps of struggles with heartbreak or the loss of someone in your life? Do you have worries about life and the future and need help to sort through your thoughts? Do you wish to be seen by another person who will set aside time just for you?

The university Chaplain is here to help. Svein Valle is the Chaplain at Nord University and is an employee of the Norwegian church. Svein is available for all students and offers counselling, both in life and study situations and in existential and spiritual questions.

Quiet room

If you need a break from a hectic study day or have the need for peace and quiet to sort through your own thoughts, then you can make use of the «Quiet Room» that is located in the cellar of the main canteen Hovedkantina.
