The university has two campuses. The conference will take place at Campus Kristiansand, which has approximately 9.500 students. The buildings are surrounded by greenery and have a sleek, contemporary design. The campus is close to recreational areas and with a distance of only 3 kilometers between the city center and the campus, you can either walk, take the bus, or a taxi between the locations. The sporting facilities are very good, with a fitness centre on campus and a lot of outdoor options. The University of Agder has the largest collection of beat art in the world outside the USA.
Fiskebrygga is an urban area in Kristiansand that lies between Kvadraturen and Lagmannsholmen. Fiskebrygga was inaugurated in 1936 after a construction period of a couple of years. It is located on an area formerly known as Hegermann's shipyard. The original building stock was demolished in 1993.
Kilden is the second largest centre for performing arts in Norway, a spearhead and standard-bearer for the whole Southern Norway and an arena for great artistic experiences and visionary projects. The arts centre houses Kristiansand Symphony Orchestra, Kilden Theathre, Kilden Opera, Kilden Culturem, and Kilden Dialogue.
The architectural design of Kilden is as monumental as it is spectular. The exterior of the building features a beautiful undulating wall of locally sourced oak, reflecting its unique location close to the ocean and the elements.
The hotel is located in Spangereid with a charming atmosphere, close to Lindesnes Lighthouse, a popular attraction that is also the southern-most point of Norway.
Transport to and from the venue is arranged by the conference. Please see the doctoral consortium page.
