Narvik University College has a modern and compact campus, a good learning environment and not to mention, easy access to teaching staff. The opportunity of entering a solid research environment is also a great advantage.
The College has good relations with its collaborators within both local and national business communities. Every year the students arrange a Business Community day. Last year more than 80 businesses were represented at the College and the students received good feedback from the business community.
Narvik University College has students from about 20 different countries. A good 10 percent of students have an international background. A large number have come from educational establishments in China and Russia, countries with whom the College has good partnerships.
The College lies fairly central in Narvik, just a few minutes walk from the town centre. Narvik Municipality has approximately 18 600 inhabitants and lies in the northernmost part of Nordland district and is an important hub for both transport and communication. Proximity to the sea and mountains gives you, as a student, a unique possibility for outdoor activities and extreme sports of different kinds. The Alpine skiing facility situated near the centre of town is world-renown.
The culture on offer is extensive, both within and outside of the student milieu.
Narvik is the perfect place to study. We are a small College where the students are noticed, and we hope that you choose to come to the technological capital in Northern Norway when you start your studies.
The IT service
Narvik University Colleges (NUCs) unit for IT services is called the IT Section. The responsibility for its activities lies with the IT Manager.
The IT section is responsible for the information technology and data communication infrastructure. This includes the network (cables, switches, routers etc), servers, PCs, printers, scanners and relevant software (operating systems and applications, security monitoring).
The IT section staff, as well as their apprentices and trainees, provide usersupport to students and employees at the NUC.
NUC has its own set of rules for acceptable use of our IT and communications infrastructure, the ICT regulations. Each student and employee need to know these regulations (check link to the left). When you log on to our systems with the assigned user ID and password, it is considered an acceptance of the ICT regulations.
The IT Section is also responsible for the internet connection for SSINs apartments.
