The International Student Union
The International Student Union (ISU) aims specifically to support the university's international students. ISU fills the same official capacities as the other students' unions. Additionally, ISU arranges regular activities and events, which give international students the opportunity to socialise and look around Bodø. Events include international week, film nights, quizes and an annual farewell party for students leaving Bodø. The weekly coffee hour takes place at Samfunnet on Wednesdays.
ISU's office is located across the hall from Alexandria Cafe. The ISU student organisation in Bodø has established its own Facebook site.
