Student life can be challenging. Sometimes it helps to talk about difficult thoughts and feelings before they become bigger issues.

Book time

How can the COUNSELLING service help you?

In the course of your studies, you can experience situations that can be difficult to deal with on your own. At these times, you may come to the counselling service 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 such as 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.

The counselling service can also help you get in contact with public services, and facilitate cooperation with them, and the university.

The service is free and we are bound by confidentiality.

If you have questions concerning practical matters about your studies, such as grading, semester registration or re-sit exams, you must contact a Study Advisor at Nord University.


You can book an individual appointment in the counseling service premises, or an appointment by phone or video. Some also offer walk and talk sessions. See the counselling service in Bodø and their services below - and find the type of session that suites you.

Long waiting list?

Student counsellor Stine Marie Sivertsen is available for drop in counselling at her office Tuesdays 10am - 3pm.

If the counselling service at your campus has a long waiting list, you can book a session on video or phone from one of the other Nord University campuses. 

See overwiev and book a video or phone session here.

If you want to talk to someone else - or if you need help during periods we have closed - there are several other helplines you may contact.

View other helplines here, including "The Student Phone".

Quiet room

If you need a break from a hectic study routine, or need silence and time to sort out your own thoughts, you can make use of the "Quiet Room" located in the basement by the Main Canteen "Hovedkantina".
