About the buildings:

Sætre student accommodation was built in 1993 and later fully renovated in the spring of 2018.

In the spring of 2018, all interior walls were painted in light colours, and the flooring and some windows were replaced. On the first floor, all four single units have a private, newly refurbished bathroom. On the ground floor, two residents share a bathroom, which has been rehabilitated. The kitchens on both floors were renovated, the curtains were changed and most of the furniture in the single units and kitchens was upgraded.

Each resident now has their own fridge with a small freezer. The kitchens on both floors have a dishwasher.

The buildings contain:

  • 60 single units in seven houses, some with private bathroom and shared kitchen (for four residents), others with shared bathroom (two residents share) and kitchen (for four residents).
  • Eight single units in each house (24G has 12 single units).
  • The units on the first floor are 15.3 m2 including private bathroom. The units on the ground floor are 12.1 m2. There is also a common room.
  • Four students share a kitchen on each floor.

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.

Priv-ssid: Private wireless network

Private WiFi

SSID and password for your personal wireless network can be found 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).

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