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 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.
