Use MazeMap to find the room or the auditorium you are looking for when visiting UiS! The map also contains other important information about the buildings and outdoor spaces.

We recommend using public transportation or bicycles to get to the university campus. Parking options at the Ullandhaug campus are limited.

The Faculty of Performing Arts is located in Bjergsted, and the Archaeological Museum is situated in Våland in downtown Stavanger.

Opening Hours

The buildings on the campus are open to the public from 07:45 AM to 8:00 PM. After 8:00 PM, a key card is required for access. The alarm is set at 11:00 PM. The alarm doesn't apply to the University Library, which operates with its own opening hours.


Information about accessibility in public buildings can be found at "Bygg for alle" (Buildings for Everyone). Enter the full or partial name of the building you want to know more about in the search field.

Dining locations at Campus Ullandhaug

The dining services provided on campus can offer good and affordable options to most students. Most of the student cantinas are operated by Studentsamskipnaden i Stavanger, SiS Cafe.
