This commentary contributes to the dialogue about societal challenges and responses to the increasing number of unaccompanied children seeking asylum in Europe. The piece provides an example of how university students in a field-based study programme offer daily activities to asylum seeking boys, who are not offered proper schooling by the local authorities. Experiences from the project reveal that partnership between the university and a local municipality can create double-loop learning and positive relationships on an individual level, but also serve as a buffer when economic resources in society are scarce.
