Located on a former railway depot in Bergen, Norway, the reinvigorated Bergen University College campus will be home to the school's engineering, health and teaching programs.

A joint project of Cubo Arkitekter and HLM Arkitektur, the Bergen University College campus incorporates former buildings that have been restored to make up the "campus town" area, housing the residence, cafeteria, gym and library. The campus aims to create a space conducive to learning and collaboration, while they have also designed the auditoriums and classrooms to offer views of the courtyard and scenery, which will aid in student well-being.

The campus offers space for students of all three programs to study surrounded by their peers or common areas that encourage interaction across the disciplines.
