Norwegian School of Information Technology (Norwegian: Norges Informasjonsteknologiske Høgskole, NITH) is a Norwegian information technology university college located in Oslo, Norway.[1] It previously had schools located in Bergen, Stavanger and Bærum, but these were later shut down.

It was established in 1995 as a merger of NHI Datahøgskolen and NKI Ingeniørhøgskolen. It was known as Den Polytekniske Høgskolen (DPH) until 2002, when it took its current name.

It has 600 students and a faculty of about 25 lecturers.

Since 2007 it is owned by the company Anthon B Nilsen.

In 2014, Westerdals Oslo School of Arts, Communication and Technology was established as a result of the merger[2] of the three colleges Westerdals School of Communication, NISS (Nordic Institute of Stage and Studio) and NITH (The Norwegian School of Information Technology).
