Nice place! Don't be too hard on students and expect too much. If you are searching for a good pub hamburger or beer with snacks, friendly atmosphere and nice service - it is your place. Simple and good!

This modern and friendly atmosphere was very welcoming. The burgers are delicious and are not very expensive.

For a student pub/restaurant/ hangout the place simply delivers. Amazing chicken bruschetta a good selection of beers and a nice cost/benefit ratio.

this is a student place but used by older people. It has life people talking which is much more lively than the 'sit at table' typical restaurant. Nice touch owned by Tromso Uni students - give the generation a go. Food is good- chicken burgher...More

Best place in town for events and concerts. The food there is great and the service is excellent. Ranks on my top three list of places in Tromsø for drinking and dancing.

I just went there and asked for a warm chocolate, one of the things they have in the list. They could not. Why? They did not know how to. I know it is a place run by s̶l̶a̶v̶e̶s̶ volunteers, but at least teach them!More

Hi Eura! Thank you for your feedback. We are very sorry that you didn't get to order a cup of warm chocolate. We take this very seriously and are therefore going through our routines on training in the cafè with our volunteers. Please come back...More

We wanted to try the food, but the kitchen was already closed at 8 pm. At least the stuff recommended us another bar (Blårock Cafe) where we grabbed some burgers.

Popped by before a brewery tour to get some food. Good burger, and you can also get a reindeer kebab here :)

Their menu was very limited in selections and I do not recall if they served any pasta dishes. If you want good pasta in Tromso, go to Pastafabrikken at Sjogata 17 near the Radisson Blu Hotel and they are one of few... More

Studentsamfunnet Driv is owned by Norges arktiske studentsamskipnad and is run on voluntary basis by the students of Tromso. At any time there are approximately 100 active volunteers in our organization. Driv opened on april 1st, 2000, and in january 2014 we were relocated to new facilities in Mack-kvartalet (Storgata 6). Our student house consists of 4 bars, three stages of different sizes and a basement where we plan to house our cultural department. The concert rate at Driv is one of the higher ones in Norway. Several thousands of students have volunteered at Driv since 2000. We offer dining on all weekdays and saturday. We serve simple dishes like hamburgers, sandwiches and salads. The kitchen is run by professional chefs, who are among the few paid people at Driv.
