Events and classes in the library
Our event area is located by the entrance of the library. It comes equipped with microphones and the option to connect to a larger screen. We regularly host events with students and researchers as our target audience, like Language Café, Writer’s Night, and book presentations.
If you wish to host an event in the library, contact the library’s event coordinator Julie Hoel.
The Data Lab is suited for classes and seminars focusing on collaboration. The room is furnished with small and large group tables, and you can connect to three different screens.
The Data Lab is inspired by a mad professor’s lab, and the room is perfect if you need a room with its own, special atmosphere.

Writers' night is an evening where the library can help you with questions about academic writing and exams.
The library hosts Writer’s night once each semester. It is an opportunity for you to focus on your studies, exams, and academic writing for a whole evening. The library gives guidance in academic writing, courses in citation management and useful tips and tricks on how to become a better student.
All of the classes and activities are free of charge and you can attend classes in both English and Norwegian.
Each semester the library host a series of language cafes, to give international students and staff at UiS a chance to practice their Norwegian in an informal setting.
All international students and staff at UiS, who have some knowledge of Norwegian, are welcome to join the language café. This is an opportunity to practice Norwegian together with other students and Norwegians.
Join the library if you want to practice your Norwegian. Over a cup og coffee, or tea, you can speak Norwegian in a group lead by a native Norwegian speaker. Togheter we play games, and talk about all of the questions you might have about Norway and Norwegians.
