Meieriet – the student house

Meieriet is the student house in Sogndal. It is run as a volunteer organisation, and that is probably the key to their success, as it is renowned as one of the best concert venues in Norway.

Sogndal Student Association (Studentsamfunnet i Sogndal) is based at Meieriet. The student association is divided into over 20 subgroups, ranging from bands, dance groups, choir, DJs, PR, booking, bartending etc.

All students in Sogndal are free to join one or more of the many subgroups at Meieriet. You do not need any experience at all to join. By joining one of the groups, you will have a great chance to integrate with Norwegian students. You will get experiences and learn new things that you did not think you would ever learn. We recommend all international students to join one or more groups at Meieriet during your stay.
