Buddy system – Facebook

To ensure a smooth integration to the Icelandic way of student life, UNAK has a buddy system arrangement. This means that when you are accepted to the University, you will be assigned a buddy. All of our buddies are students at UNAK who have volunteered to help international students adapt during the first few weeks of their stay. Your buddy will, amongst other things: 

  • Meet you at the bus terminal or airport and take you to your accommodation
  • Show you around the University’s premises
  • Show you around the town centre
  • Show you where it is most practical to do your shopping
  • Teach you how to use the bus system

Furthermore, if you have any questions do not hesitate to send your buddy an e-mail, as our buddies are quite happy to assist you in any way they can. The extent of the relationship beyond this depends on how well the students get along. We try our best to provide all students with a buddy. As your buddy is a student at UNAK, he/she will be able to give you practical hints on student life in Akureyri, so we encourage all of our international students to use this opportunity to the fullest.


Facebook - past, present and future exchange students at UNAK

We have a Facebook group for exchange students at the University of Akureyri where you can socialise and ask questions. Unfortunately this is only available for those who have a Facebook account and can access Facebook in their country. This group is only for accepted exchange students coming to UNAK.
