Velkomsten

Welcome committee

The welcome committee is an initiative at Nord University Bodø. The committee will ensure that you get the best possible start as a new student in Bodø.

The welcome committee is run by students, who know that getting established in a new city is not always easy. Our main goal is to ensure a smooth transition to student life in Bodø for new students.

We can collect you upon arrival in Bodø, at the airport, train station, quay or bus stop, and drive you to your student accommodation.

If you should find yourself without accommodation upon arrival in Bodø, we can help you look for accommodation and ensure that you have a roof over your head.

The welcome committee arranges guided tours to the world's strongest tidal current, Saltstraumen, for all new students. At Saltstraumen participants will get to taste traditional fish soup and enjoy the spectacular view over the surrounding landscape. The welcome committee will also take you on a tour of Luftfartsmuseèt, Norway's national aviation museum on the way. This is definitely a trip worth taking!
