Around Campus

There are a couple of activities close to the campus which could be of interest:

- 20 min walk to Ullandhaugtårnet: Behind campus there is a hill with a tower, Ullandhaugtårnet, with a nice view over town, towards the fjords, and over the sea.

- 25 min walk to "Sverd i Stein": Three large swords erected to commemorate a famous viking battle taking place in Hafrsfjord that unified Norway for the first time. 

- Jernaldergården: A bronze age museum and excavation site, with a reconstructed iron age farm and living quarters. 

 

In Town: 

- Fargegata: A pretty little street in the center of town, with many great local bars and coffee shops. 

- Cardinal Pub: One of the more famous pubs in Stavanger. They claim to have the largest beer selection in Norway, and from experience this could well be true.

- Martiniqu Bar: A nice local bar in Pedersgata (street with many nice restaurant spots). It could be a nice option if you fancy an after dinner drink. They often have live music. 

- Oljemuseet: A museum, shaped like an oil platform, dedicated to the oil industry of Stavanger (the oil capital of Norway).

- Gamle Stavanger and Norsk Hermetikkmuseum: The beautiful old town, and the Norwegian Canning Museum. Before the oil, the (much smaller) town Stavanger was known for its canning industry.  

- Byparken, with a Christmas Market: In the center of town, surrounding a small lake, lies the city park. It borders both a small cathedral and a prestigious high school, and is currently hosting a christmas market
