Welcome to the University Chalplaincy and the Student Congregation in Trondheim!
The Universitiy Chaplains are employed by the Church to be a part of the student`s welfare program. We are ordained ministers of the Lutheran Church of Norway, but we welcome all students, no matter faith, to counseling or to take part in the events that we offer together with the Student Congregation.
The start of semester
At the start of semester, we offer a program for new (and old) students. Some of our program is in English. Click here to read about it.
Sometimes life does not go the way that we want it to or the way that we had planned. This can be distressing and can lead to painful thoughts that drain all of your energy. Perhaps you're feeling insecure about the future. Maybe you feel a lack of meaning in your life. Or maybe you're working through a broken relationship. Perhaps you feel lonely and lost and are missing your family, country or culture.
In situations like these, it is often a good idea to talk to someone. The University Chaplains welcome all students who need counseling for social, relational, existential or religious issues. We are a part of the University`s welfare program and are bound to observe confidentiality.

We have a Quiet Room at the Dragvoll campus located in building 2 across from the Cafè. This room is available for students who want a place for prayer, silence or meditation during the day. Students from all denominations and religions are welcome in this room. It is also possible to book the Quiet Room for shorter common prayers. Contact the University Chaplains for bookings.
The University Chaplains and the Student Congregation offer services in Nidaros Cahtedral every second Sunday during the term. The services are usually in Norwegian; once a semester, however, we provide a service in English together with the Anglican Congregation. For the Autumn term the English service will be held on the 15.10 at 6 pm.

The Anglican Congregation offers services in English every Sunday. They also have a student group.
The Catholic Student Group (Albert Magnus) also offers a program mainly in English.
Friends & Food
Welcome to our student dinners!!! One Wednesday of every month, students from across Norway and from countries around the world come together and share a meal.
We take turns preparing our traditional foods and sharing them with one another. Persons of all religious backbrounds are welcome (but we cannot promise kosher or halal food every time).
If you would like to attend, please send an e-mail to: firstname.lastname@example.org Our maximum capacity is 35 and the reservations are accepted in the order that they are received; so don't wait too long! You will receive a confirmation email if you were in time to get a place at the table.
