Kringsjå Student Village is located 15 mins from Oslo city center by public transport. With Sognsvann and Nordmarka as your closest neighbors, you’ll have fresh air and endless tracks for walking, swimming, running or skiing right outside your door. The Norwegian School of Sport Sciences is located close by the student village. In other words, living in Kringsjå Student Village provides the opportunities you need for an active lifestyle all year round.

And if you want a trip to the city center, the subway has frequent departures right by the student village.

Kringsjå Student Village has undergone extensive upgrades in recent years. The work has, among other things, been based on input we received in a survey sent to all residents of Kringsjå in the autumn of 2017.

In the student village, SiO Athletica has a fitness center (presently closed due to the corona situation) and if you want something good to eat or to meet friends, you can do this at Union864 which is run by SiO Food and Beverage.

There are two new, large laundries in the student village. One is located in Olav M. Troviks vei 70 and the other you can find in a separate building between Olav M. Troviks vei 18 and 24. The latter we call the Laundry Pavilion.

If you don't wish to study inside your residence, you can study at the common study room located at Olav M. Troviks vei 70.

We will continue the development of the student village and in the years to come we will rehabilitate and build more student housing at Kringsjå Student Village. We will also develop the outdoor areas further. The goal is to create a vibrant student village for everyone who lives there. This means that residents of the student village can experience noise from construction projects. On this page you can find up-to-date information about construction projects in Kringsjå Student Village at any time.

The underground from Kringsjå station has a frequent timetable, and will take you to Oslo city centre in 15 mins. Kringsjå is also on the night bus line.

Kringsjå Student Village is our largest student village, including over 2900 housing units in all price ranges, suitable for singles, couples and families.

There are several bicycle racks in the student village. There are also some baby stroller rooms. Bicycles and baby strollers must be marked with a sticker, which you can pick up at the SiO Customer Service Centre.

Your mailbox is located in the entrance of your building. The supermarket provides postal services, such as sending and receiving packages.

Most housing units have their own storage room, located in the basement. Remember to buy a padlock for the storage room. Some of the housing units have a joint storage room for the tenants. In that case, you will find the key in the common kitchen.

The fire alarm systems in the student village are connected directly to the Agency for 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.

You must buy and change your own light bulbs in your housing unit. If you share your kitchen or entrance with more than two people, SiO Housing is responsible for changing the light bulbs. Please notify us via My page about bulbs that need to be changed.

If your housing unit has a balcony, please respect your neighbours. This means no barbequing, smoking, storage or carpets being aired from the balcony.
