Are you moving into a student house? Welcome!


Where and when can I pick up the keys for my new residence?

You can pick up the keys to your apartment at SiO Customer Center from 12:00 the day your contract starts. You will find us in Kristian Ottesen's house on Blindern. Our visiting address is Problemveien 9, 0313 Oslo.

For infection control reasons, we use key boxes on days when many students move in. Then you will be notified well in advance by e-mail about what to do.

If your contract begins on a weekend or on a public holiday, the keys can be picked up from 12:00 the following working day.

To collect keys you need physical identification and a deposit must be paid. The deposit invoice can be found on My Page - My finances

From the starting day of your contract, you have 14 days to collect the key. If you are unable to pick up the keys within these 14 days, please let us know. If you fail to notify us, you may risk losing your accommodation.

Arriving outside our opening hours?

If you arrive outside of our opening hours, please read here.

What do I need to bring when collecting my keys?

Before you come to collect your keys, make sure you have paid your deposit. You will receive your first rental invoice after you have moved in.

Remember to bring:

  • Valid ID (passport, Scandinavian driver’s license, most European identity cards – See list here)
  • If you have already paid your semester fee, you do not need to bring additional documentation.
  • If you have not yet paid your semester fee, please bring documentation that you are a student at a SiO-institution. Your application is sufficient if you have not yet received an answer.

In order for you to get your mail to your new address, you must mark your mailbox and report your move to Posten and your contacts. Please make sure to report you name, address, floor and room number. You will not receive your mail if you only mark your mail box. Report your move here.

We hope you will enjoy your new home!
