About the buildings:

The student accommodation at Øvre Sund was completed in time for the semester start in 2017 and won the City of Drammen's building award in 2018!

There are a total of 243 accommodation units in three buildings: Tutus (built in 2012), Domi and Unitas (built in 2017).

The buildings have the following unit types:

We have no family apartments in Drammen.

All residents living in single units has their own, private fridge and kitchen cabinet in the shared kitchen. All units and indoors common areas are non smoking. 

Check out all dorms and apartments at Øvre Sund. 

(The flats and apartments in Tutus, which are from the first stage of construction, differ from Domi and Unitas. In the pictures, the flats/apartments in Tutus are characterised by, among other things, dark kitchens).

Practical information about Øvre Sund Student housing:

Some units are facilitated for handicapped. Read more about adaptation for disabilities.

There is a large room for bicycle parking on the ground floor, where you can store your bicycle as well as washing and repairing it.

There is one elevator in each building.

The student accommodation is located on the opposite bank of the river from Papirbredden Knowledge Park. With the Ypsilon bridge over the river, residents only have a few minutes' walk to campus. Read more about Campus Drammen at USN.

The buildings have large common outdoor areas with grass and plants. A public playground is located at the outskirts of the outdoor area.

There are two HC-parking lots for cars, but no more spaces reserved for the student housings. Because of the proximity to the emergency room's ambulance entrance, it is of high importance not to park incorrectly by the student housings.

In your shared kitchen in Domi and Unitas you will find a Quooker, where you get boiling water (110 °C) directly from the faucet.

You´ll find one shared laundry room on the ground floor of Tutus for residents in this building, as well as a shared laundry room on the ground floor of Domi. This is available for all residents in Domi and Unitas. The laundry in Domi has washing machines with dosing systems for detergent, which means that you do not have to bring your own detergent.

Read more about using the laundry room / appWash here.

Storage rooms are located on the lower floor of Unitas, where all storage rooms are marked with room numbers. Use the basement entrance to access the storage rooms. 

Inside the bicycle shed in Unitas you will find a swap shelf. Here you can leave things you no longer need, or find things you need for your dorm. It is not permitted to leave furniture or textiles.

  • Waste igloos for Domi / Unitas (buried tanks) are located at the main entrance to Domi.
  • Waste bins for Tutus can be found in the waste shed at the entrance. Code for the door lock is: 1258 #.

Remember to sort your waste!

District heating system

Electricity is included in the rent.

The building is attached to a district heating system that contributes to heating of water, ventilation heating and heating of radiators.

Think of the environment - help us saving energy!

The student housing is built to be energy-efficient to retain heat during the cold season. There is no cooling installed on the property and in the summer months it can get hot inside if it is hot outside.

Cable in router

Internet via cable

A router from SSN has been placed in your apartment. To use a wired connection, you must connect the device you wish to use through this.

We recommend that you use network cables of the standard cat5e or newer.

Private WiFi

SSID and password for your personal wireless network can be found under the internet tab on My page.

SSN external

This wireless network is reserved for tenants who do not have an account to use eduroam. If you are not a student or employee at USN you will find the password under the Internet tab on my page.

WiFi: Eduroam

This is the same wireless network that you will find on campus (in addition to a number of other locations). To log in to eduroam, you must use your student account ([email protected] + password). You obtain your student account from the university at the start of studies. More information about student accounts can be found on the USN website.

Eduroam uses wpa-enterprise for authentication. This means you need both a username and password to log in. Many devices such as smart TV, Chromecast, Apple TV and gaming consoles do not support this and therefore cannot be used on Eduroam.

WiFi public areas

These wireless networks are also available in public areas (kitchen/lounge/hallway).

Key card and unlocking of doors from app/My page

Lock yourself in with your mobile phone

You can easily lock in via "My key card" on My page on mobile phone/desktop or via the Student Sørøst app (My key card is found under the service for Student housing). My key card gives you the opportunity to unlock all doors you have access to through your tenancy with SSN. It is also this function that you can use to lock in guests.

NB! We recommend that you always take your key card with you when you leave the dormitory. Opening from the web will not work if you lack internet or My page is down.

Tip - buy an extra key card at SSN's service office! There are snap locks on the doors and it is easy to lock out. An extra key card can be kept with a fellow student.

Key card:

You will receive one key card (free of charge) when you move into your student housing unit. This is how it works:
Outer door:
Hold the card close to the card reader. It should flash green in the reader. Enter your four-digit code. The door is unlocked.

Interior doors:

Hold the card close to the reader unit. Press down on the handle and open the door when you get a green light and a single beep. The door locks automatically when it is closed, but can always be opened from the inside with the door turner.

NB! Do not make holes in or write on the key card - it may stop working.

Error message in the card reader on the dormitory/apartment door:

Green and red light flashing alternately: low battery voltage, the batteries must be replaced immediately. If the battery voltage is low, it can also happen that red and green flash at the same time. Report on Errors and deficiencies on My page if you need a battery replacement.

When you move out, you return the key card, feel free to use one of our drop boxes. ATTENTION! A fee is triggered if you don´t return your key card. See the price list.

Subject to errors in inventory. In addition, some inventory may apply to common areas and not the individual unit.
