The University Chaplaincy

The University Chaplains are present at UiO, OsloMet and BI.

When you need some to talk to, the University Chaplains are available for counselling and coaching.

We have time and are under the pledge of silence.

We know the different faith communities in Oslo and can help you find your congregation.
