Oslo Metropolitan University is a state university in Oslo and Viken in Norway. It has around 1,400 academic employees, around 20,000 students and around 800 administrative support staff.

Oslo Metropolitan University was established on 12 January 2018 and is the second youngest of Norway’s new universities. It evolved from what was until 2018 Norway’s largest university college, Oslo and Akershus University College, which was itself the result of many previous mergers of around 30 former colleges and community colleges in the Oslo area. It should not be confused with Norway’s oldest and highest ranked university, the University of Oslo. Unlike the older universities, most of Oslo Metropolitan University’s predecessor institutions historically focused on vocational education.
