Have you applied for studies at USN this fall? Remember to apply for student housing as well! If you apply NOW, the chance of getting housing for the semester start is better.

Apply now!

The sooner you apply for student housing, the higher you will be on the waiting list, and the sooner there is a chance that YOU will be allocated housing with us. You should therefore apply for student housing NOW!

Three tips to increase your chances:

  1. Submit your application at My page as early as possible!

  2. Select the desired move-in date in a month other than August.

  3. Register several favourites in your application, to open up for more alternatives. In the application form, you can also agree to receive offers for alternatives other than your favourites.

⭐️ Pro tips: If you don't get the "dorm of your dreams" on the first try, but accept the accommodation you get, you can apply again and change housing units later. When you are already a resident of SSN's student housing, you will be given priority on the waiting list when your dream dorm is available.

"What if I am not amitted? What do I do with the student housing I have rented?"

No problemo! When the answer to the main admission comes from Samordna Opptak on July 20, you will know whether you have been amitted to the study program or not.

If you do not get amitted to the study program you wanted, and thus do not need a place to live near the place of study anyway, but have signed the lease, you can cancel the agreement with us by 31 July.

You have many choices

Close to campus, close to the city center or rural location

When it comes to location, there are also several options at the larger campuses. We offer alternatives right on campus, alternatives close to the closest city center, and also residential areas that are more rural in many places. Find out what you want, and feel free to make a priority list when you apply.
