Clubs and societies in Oslo

For expats new to the city, meeting people in Oslo can seem like a daunting task. Luckily, there are many clubs and societies for expats to meet other expats and locals, in order to make the most of their time in Oslo. The workplace is also an important place to meet others and make connections, and learn about Norwegian culture and society. 


Networking in Oslo

Networking is extremely important in a small community such as Oslo, especially in business. Often, business relationships, hiring, investment and sales are influenced by one’s professional and personal network. 

There are many opportunities for networking in Oslo, especially within the international community. Embassies, national organisations and Chambers of Commerce can be good places to look for clubs or organisations to get involved in. Most of these groups have monthly meetings for members and one is welcome to join as a visitor.

Here are some of the clubs and societies that expats in Oslo can join:
