The pressures of university life can be substantial, particularly if you’re living in a new country and are juggling the combined challenges of a new culture and language along with coursework and research.
Some new residents find the onset of winter difficult, because of the marked changes in light. Don’t despair – help is available!
SiT offers easily accessible counselling and mental health services that can provide short-term counselling or access to longer-term counselling or care. And remember, one of the best ways to care for your mental health is to take care of your physical health, so consider going for a hike or a ski in Bymarka or Estenstadmarka, or join NTNUI , the university’s athletic association, for access to the university’s two sports centres. NTNUI’s 50 different sports groups not only give you a chance to learn a new sport or play with a team, but offer the opportunity to meet people and make new friends.
