Norden House

Norden House is a residential language immersion program for UW students studying Norwegian, Danish or Swedish. Norden residents enroll in a one-credit seminar that explores different facets of Scandinavian society. Residents also take trips throughout the year to some of the many rich northern European heritage sites located throughout Wisconsin and neighboring states and learn about the folk traditions of Scandinavia.

Norden House is housed on the UW campus in Adams Residence Hall.

For more information, please contact Brett Mignin (Norden GLPC) or Scott Mellor (Faculty Director).
