Are you moving into a student house? Welcome! We hope you will enjoy living with us!


You will need to pick up the key to your new home at the SiO Customer Service Centre within 14 days after the start of your contract. We are based at Kristian Ottosens hus, Problemveien 9, at BlindernPlease notify us if you are unable to come by within 14 days. If you fail to notify us, your housing will be offered to another student.

Remember to make sure you pay your deposit. The deposit must be paid and registered in our systems before you pick up your key.

When you pick the key to your new home, you must bring documentation that you are studying or will start studying at an educational institution affiliated with SiO. If you need to pick up your key before you have obtained a place of study, you must include documentation from Samordna Opptak (The Norwegian Universities and Colleges Admission Service) to show that you have applied.
Students who are studying or about to start studying at educational institutions that are not members of SiO will not be allowed to move in (unless otherwise agreed).

At the Customer Service Centre, you can get a temporary parking permit when moving in. Then you avoid parking fees while bringing your belongings into your residence.

We hope you will be happy with your new student residence! Should you find anything missing or not right in your residence after moving in, it is very important that you notify us immediately so that we can help you. You can report errors on My page.

The rental invoice will be sent to you around the 17th of the month you move in. The first month you will receive two rental invoices at the same time; one for the month that you move in, and one for the coming month, as the rent has to be paid in advance.

Once you’ve signed the contract, it is a good idea to get well acquainted with the local environment, how to get there and other useful information.

There are many students living together in the student houses and it is important to show consideration and respect for others. Read more about the everyday life in our student houses even before you move in.

We hope you will settle well into your new student housing. If you wish, you may apply to change for another student housing or apply to sublet your housing.

Good luck!
