Grünerløkka Student House is a converted silo. You may have seen this characteristic round building with happy colours, located in the middle of Grünerløkka? The round shapes are a recurrent theme throughout the whole building, and several of the flats are actually round with specially designed furniture. Here you will have a unique and central home right in the heart of one of Oslo's most coveted areas.

Replacement of elevators
The building has two elevators. They will be replaced, one at a time, in 2020. There will be limited capacity on the elevators in large parts of 2020 and some noise and vibrations in the building must be expected during this period.

Startup and progress
We divide the work into two phases, where we first repair the left elevator and then the right one so that there is an elevator in operation at all times. We have technicians and service personnel available throughout the period to follow up on the elevator that is in operation.

  • Work on the left elevator started in January 2020 and the elevator will then be closed for use until scheduled completion in May.
  • Work on the right elevator will start in June, and the elevator will then be closed for use until scheduled completion in October.
  • Both elevators will be closed on weekdays between 10:30 am - 11:00 am and 3:30 pm - 4:00 pm. This is to transport materials up and down in connection with the project.

Working hours
Working hours on the elevator will normally be Monday - Friday between 8 am – 5 pm. We will continuously evaluate any working hours beyond this, in order to shorten the implementation period. This will be notified separately.

The tram from Grünerløkka takes you to the centre of Oslo in just a few mins. There are also several buses that pass through the area.

Grünerløkka Student House is a converted silo spread over 19 floors. The house has 227 student housing units, with options for those who want to live alone and for couples who want to live together.

 

Housing units

Grünerløkka is one of Oslo's most popular areas, in terms of both nightlife and shopping. Grünerløkka has plenty of cafés, restaurants and small speciality shops. The Grünerløkka area is known for its many parks, frequently used for picnics and relaxation during the summer months.

The student house's laundry is located on the 17th floor. Read about how to reserve a time slot and pay here.

Lockable bike rooms are located in the basement. Remember to mark your bike with a sticker available at the SiO Customer Service Centre.
Q-park is responsible for renting out parking spots for cars belonging to the student house. Read more about the regulations and how to obtain a parking spot here.

The housing units in the student house do not have their own storage rooms. Instead all units have are equipped with extra wardrobe space.

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.

The student house has automatic fuses and the fuse boxes for each room are located outside of each corridor door. For the flats, the fuse boxes are located inside the housing unit. You are responsible for changing the lightbulbs in your own housing unit. Please contact us via My page if the lightbulbs in the common areas burn out.
