Bjølsen Student Village is a modern student village located in the middle of Oslo, right next to Torshov and Sagene. From here you quickly get to Nydalen and BI, or you can stroll along the idyllic Akerselva down to Grünerløkka. If you are on the lookout for a place to live that is both pleasant and central, Bjølsen Student Village is a good choice.

During 2023, we will replace all lifts at Bjølsen Student Village. The lifts in Moldegata 5, 11, 13, 15, 17, 19, 25, 27 and 45 will be replaced in the first six months of the year, while the lifts in Moldegata 3, 21, 23, 41 and 43 will be replaced in the last six months of the year. We reserve the right to make changes in the order.

This means that you will be without a lift during the period the works are ongoing to replace the lift in your building, except where there are several lifts. The work will last between 2-3 months on each lift depending on the number of floors in your building, with the exception of Moldegata 3 where the works will last approximately 4 months. Parts of the works replacing the lift in your building will at times cause noise.

Bjølsen has frequent bus connections both by day and night time.

Bjølsen Student Village was built in 2002/2003 and consists of 1087 housing units.

Bjølsen Student Village has both single rooms and flats, and some wheelchair accessible flats. The majority of residences have ta private bathroom.

Bjølsen is a very central area. You will have Akerselva and other nice hiking opportunities close by, and still be a short distance from the city centre. The outside area of the student village is designed by the renowned architecture office Snøhetta. There is a supermarket inside the student village.

The student village has its own laundry in Moldegata 5. You can read about how to book a washing machine and pay for laundry here.

There are a parking house in the student village. Read more about the parking arrangement here. Guests must buy parking tickets from the machine or app.

All units in the student villages have their own bicycle parking.

At the entrance to the student village there is a barrier. If you are going to drive in by car, you can use your access card with black S to open the barrier. The card reader can be found on the house wall next to the barrier. Remember that you must have a parking permit before you will be able to drive through the barrier. You get this in the Customer Service Centre.

You must mark your mailbox with your name. You must also report your address to Posten to receive mail. You can report your address and read Posten’s tips for students here.

Everyone has access to a storage room and the majority of accommodation has storage rooms inside the housing units. Remember to buy a padlock for the storage room.

The fire alarm systems in the student village are connected directly to the Agency of Fire and Rescue Services. If you cause a false alarm, you will be charged for the fire brigade’s emergency cost. Read more about fire safety here.

If you have a housing unit with a balcony remember to be considerate towards those around you. That means no barbequing, smoking, airing carpets or storage on balconies.
