Campus Grimstad is located in The Technology Park or "Teknologiparken", Southern Norway's centre for research and development. 

Along Gata, which means "street" in Norwegian, you will find auditoriums, classrooms, the library, UiA Help, the student cafeteria, and other services. There are also many spots available to study and work.

In the library you will find a lot more than just books. There are magazines, newspapers, movies and reading spots with and without screen and keyboard. This is also where you will find the general help desk at the university - UiA Help.

The Health Lab has practice rooms with a hospital standard for nursing students, with advanced dolls as patients. The dolls can be programmed with various diseases and injuries. Students learn to perform treatment in different rooms, and to cope with stressful situations.

The Student Welfare Organisation in Agder (SiA) has 600 student housing units, whereof 400 are situated on campus.
