Bjølsen Student Village is a modern student village located smack 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.
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 is therefore a relatively new student village with modern facilities like hydronic heating. Bjølsen Student Village has both single rooms and flats, with some flats wheelchair accessible.
All residences have high standards and the majority of them have their own 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 village.
Q-Park rents out parking spaces in the student village. Guests must buy parking tickets from the machine. When you move in you can ask SiO Customer Service Centre for access to the barriers so that you can drive all the way to the student housing.
All units in the student villages have their own bicycle parking. Remember to mark your bike with a sticker available at the SiO Customer Service Centre.
Your mailbox is located in the mailbox facility at Moldegata 21.
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.
Remember to recycle your food waste, plastic and general rubbish. Please dispose of your rubbish in the rubbish room at Moldegata 5 or 29.
