n recent years SiO has rehabilitated and built several accommodations at Kringsjå Student Village. We have also conducted a considerable development of the outdoor areas. The goal was to create a vibrant and exiting student village for all who live there. There is still work remaining and here you can read about what will this mean for you who live in the student village today?

Upgrading of the outdoor areas
We have upgraded the outdoor areas of the student village with training facilities and common areas for activity. The plans are highly based on input we received in a survey sent to all residents at Kringsjå in the autumn of 2017.

Below Olav M. Troviks vei 72 Kringsjå square is established, with seating, petanque, and a water table that can be used as an ice skating rink during winter. We will throughout the year arrange different events at Kringsjå Square. Further down in the student village there is established an area for recreation with orchard and plant boxes that you as a tenant at Kringsjå can use. There is also an outdoor training park by Sognsveien open for all tenants to use. There will also be established an obstacle course, sand volley ball court, mini-pitch and a running track.

SiO Athletica has opened at Kringsjå!
SiO Athletica has opened a new gym at the student village. The gym is located in Olav M. Troviks vei 72 and offer training in studio. You can also participate in group session, or train in the outdoor gym. Read more here to become a member at SiO Athletica.

New family accommodations
We have built 82 2-bedroom family residences southwest in the student village. These residences are built of solid wood and are energy positive houses, which means that they produce more energy than they consume in the life cycle.

Demolition of Olav M. Troviks vei 28-30
In February 2020, we start to demolish Olav M. Trovik's vei 28-30. The reason for this is that the building has reached its technical lifetime and does not meet today's requirements. Further, the bearing structure and location make it very demanding to convert the building to a modern standard. The demolition works will cause noise.

Rehabilitation of Olav M. Troviks vei 54
At the end of April 2020 we will start a rehabilitation of Olav M. Troviks vei 54. The work will cause noise.

Noisy works and reduced accessibility
We will carry out noisy works on various locations in the student village. There will be periods of reduced accessibility. Noisy works will take place Monday - Friday between 8 am and 5 pm. 

New laundries
In November 2018 we opened a new, large laundry in Olav M. Troviks vei 70 and in August 2019 another new, large laundry opened between Olav M. Troviks vei 18 and 24.

Study rooms
There are two new study rooms in Olav M. Troviks vei 70. The opening hours are from 7 - 23 every day throughout the whole year. You have access to the study room with your access card.

New, environmentally friendly student accommodations
The new student houses are built in massive wood, a environmentally friendly building material, providing good living environment and low energy costs. The construction of these houses is a Futurebuilt project, implying requirements for reduced greenhouse gas emission related to transportation, energy and material use.
