The university college has a total of just under 7,000 students. There are nearly 3,600 ordinary students at campus Halden, nearly 2,400 ordinary students at campus Fredrikstad, and nearly 1,000 students are taking continuing and further education programmes under the auspices of HiØ VIDERE (Centre for Continuing Education) at both campuses.


Our R&D/artistic research contributes to and inspires cooperation across discipline and faculty boundaries and extensive cooperation with regional and other relevant parties.

All the faculties have research groups, and most members of staff are part of one or more such groups. Research groups can focus on narrow fields or be interdisciplinary, most involve staff from more than one faculty, and some also have members from other institutions.
