University of Tromsø (UiT)

Welcome to the world’s northernmost university! UiT is our host for committee work (CW) and general assembly (GA). Established in 1968 and today counting 9000 students and 2500 staff, UiT has played a significant role in developing Tromsø to the dynamic and proud city it is today.

According to its own website “UiT operates at the intersection between boundless science and the unique challenges of the High North.” It offers a broad selection of studies, including law, economics, languages and medicine, but it is no secret that this university’s core areas of interest are studies related to the Arctic. It has close cooperation with the Norwegian Polar Institute, located in Tromsø, and the University Centre in Svalbard, 1000 kilometres further north.
 
CW will take place in modern classrooms with all necessary equipment such as flip-charts, whiteboards and video projectors. GA will take place in UiT’s largest auditorium, which seats more than 500 persons and is equipped with state-of-the-art audiovisual technology. Lunch and coffee breaks are taken care of by culinary students at nearby Breivika school and served in the university’s corridors.
