Student Life

Studying at a university involves more than attending lectures and completing assignments. The University of Iceland is conscious that social life is also an important part of university life.

The Student Council (SHÍ) promotes and protects the interests of students at the University of Iceland. The council arranges large events for all students at the university, such as Oktoberfest, and an autumn and spring semester end-of-exams dance.
