In the years to come, SiO will build more student housing at Kringsjå Student Village. We will also develop the outside areas. The goal is to create a vibrant and exciting student village for all who live there. What will this mean for you as a tenant? Here you will always find updated information about the project.

Upgrading of the outdoor areas
We will noe start upgrading 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 we will establish Kringsjå square, with seating, petanque, table tennis and a water table that can be used as an ice skating rink during winter. There will also be held different events at Kringsjå Square. Further down in the student village we will establish an area for recreation with orchard and plant boxes that you as a tenant at Kringsjå can use. There will also be an outdoor training park, obstacle course, sand volley ball court, mini-pitch and a running track, as well as cozy seating areas.

SiO Athletica opens fall 2018
SiO Athletica opens a new gym at the student village. The gym will be in the building where Kiwi was located (OMT 72). There will also be outdoor training facilities. 

Construction of family accommodations
The next step in the development of Kringsjå Student Village is the construction of 82 3-room family flats, south-west of the student city. This means that the terrace houses in OMT 38-44 must be demolished. The demolition will last from 4 to 29 June.

In connection with the construction, we will establish a temporary road and a walkway below OMT 34-36. These works will take place from 7 to 25 May. Additionally, we will also move a pump station now located at OMT 44 to the downside of OMT 46. These works will take place from 22 May to August 2018.

Noisy works and reduced accessibility
The work starts on 2 May, and the outdoor areas will be completed during the start of the semester, with a few exceptions. There will be  noise in the student village during the construction period, as well as periods of reduces accessibility. Noisy works will take place between 8 and 19 on weekdays and 10 and 15 on Saturdays.

Study room
Unfortunately, the development works means that many residents are experiencing noise. We have a study room in Sogn Student Village that you, who live in Kringsjå Student Village may use. The study has internet access, and is located in Rolf E. Stenersen allé 27, near Solvang bus stop. To gain access to the study room you must contact the Customer Service Centre by telephone or e-mail. They can program your card without you having to visit the centre. 

New, environmental friendly student accommodations
The new student houses that are finished are built in massive wood, a environmental friendly building materiale, 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. The new student houses has studio flats for singles. Do you want to move into one of them, apply for the flats here.
