Semester fee = Valid student ID

The semester fee is a statutory fee for all students who register for the exam. It helps to cover the operation of the student organization and any expenses for copies and transcripts. Once the semester fee has been paid, your student ID is valid.

It is the educational institution you belong to, that collects and registers the payment of the semester fee. If you are having questions regarding payment, deadlines or need a confirmation of your payment and the registration of you as a student, please contact your campus, not SSN.

Deadlines for paying the semester fee:

  • 1 September for fall semester

  • 1 February for spring semester

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).

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 SSN 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.

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 can buy a coffee card like this:

  1. Go to Food and Drink and "Kjøp kaffekort" (Buy coffee cards). The app now takes you to the "nettbutikk" (online store).

  2. Select "Klippekort Kaffe" (NOK 110) and Add.

  3. Select "Til betaling" (Payment). You can either pay yourself, or ask someone else to pay for you!

  4. If you want to ask someone else to pay for you, enter the phone number of the person you want to send the request to (eg mom, dad or a friend who owes you money!). Write a message and leave your own mobile number as well. Press Send SMS. Wait for the person to pay.

  5. Pay for the Coffee Card yourself by choosing Vipps or card payment.

  6. When the purchase is completed, the Coffee Card will appear under the QR code icon in your app (in the middle of the menu bar at the bottom). It may take some time before the Coffee card is displayed in the app, have a little patience.

NOTE! We recommend that you buy the Coffee Card well in advance before you intend to use it for the first time. 

We are also very grateful if you remember to have the app and your QR code ready BEFORE you arrive at the checkout (to have the QR code scanned and use one clip). This to help us avoid queuing at the checkout 😉

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.
