Each year we celebrate the beginning of the academic year with speeches, greetings and a concert. We are also offering free lunch to our guests. The concert is conducted together with the Sámi Music Festival. You can also watch the event online. The link is available on our website under "What`s up".

All events that take place in the auditorium, Sáhkaskáidi, are simultaneously interpreted through an Zoom app from Northern Sámi language to English. If you will be using the interpretation app then you must bring your own headphones and either smartphone, tablet or PC.
