Any questions?

Apply as early as possible!

There is no deadline for applying, but we recommend that you apply for accommodation as soon you have applied for admission at an educational institution associated with the University of South-Eastern Norway, the Norwegian Police University College in Stavern, the technical school Tinius Olsen or Folkeuniversitetet in South-East Norway. This is in order to enter the waiting list as early as possible.

Applications sent during term will be processed as they come in, and accommodation units that have been vacated will be offered to others as soon as they are ready.

In August, we normally do not have any vacant units, but throughout the months of June and July, many residents move out. If you apply for housing and enter a date for moving in during one of these months, you are more likely to receive your preferred unit.

This is how you apply for student housing.

If you are already a resident with us and want to change units, you are on the top of our priority list throughout the year except term start (January and August).

Only applicants that receive offers for housing will receive a reply on My page.

Since we allocate housing units on an ongoing basis, we do not reject applications. You will therefore be on the waiting list with us until:

1. You are allocated a student housing with us, or
2. It has been 60 days since you registered or last extended your application.

If you have not been allocated housing, and have not extended your application after 60 days, your application will be removed from the waiting list. Why do I have to extend my application?

We work as fast as we can to allocate housing, and will give you an answer as soon as possible. Thank you so much for your patience :)

Locked out during daytime

If you lock yourself out, and have a key card for your student housing, you can easily lock yourself in via My key card on My Page. There you have the opportunity to open all the doors you have access to with us. Opening from the web will not work if the internet on the building is down, so we do not recommend using the mobile as a permanent "key".

If you do not have a key card, you can contact your local SSN service office during opening hours. Alternatively you can contact the resident assistant at your student accommodation between 3pm and 10pm. The service is post-invoiced. The current price can be found in the price list (under "Lock-in daytime janitor/ resident assistant"). Resident assistants' contact information provided on the accommodation website under See all our student housing.

Locked out in the evening/night/weekend

If you have lost your key/locked yourself out outside of opening hours (or at weekends) and the resident assistant is not available, the Security Company can be contacted on +47 33 30 75 44. This service has a fee and will be invoiced (check the pricelist for current price).

The Security Company serves all campuses, except Rauland.

You will find information about the network connection in your student housing by clicking into the correct property (where you live) under Our student housing. Scroll to Internet in the list.

In the event of connection problems, you can restart the router in the Student Sørøst app under the Student Housing service. In most cases, it will get you back online.

Still no internet-connection? Our Technology department can assist you, send in your support inquiry via our contact form.

Yes. You must carry out the final cleaning yourself.

You can read more about final cleaning here. Note that a fee is triggered in the event of insufficient final cleaning.
