About the buildings:

The first 100 student apartments at Campus Vestfold student accommodation were completed for the start of term in 2012, with a total 241 apartments completed by the autumn of 2014. The buildings are named Alpha, Beta, Delta, Gamma, Epsilon, Sigma and Omega.

The buildings have different types of housing units:

There is a Facebook group for residents at Campus Vestfold. 

There are elevators in two of the buildings: Epsilon og Omega.

Campus Vestfold Student housing has a great outdoor area with a barbecue area and beautiful scenery. It is walking distance to the volleyball court, soccer field, body weight training equipment AND padel tennis court! The course can be reserved via My page (under Reservations).

The University's car park is located close to the student accommodation, and sections of the car park may also be used by residents. Please read more about the parking regulations at USN.

Please park your bicycle in bicycle stands outside the accommodations.

In the shared kitchen on Epsilon and Beta you will find a Quooker, where you get boiling water (110 °C) directly from the faucet.

The laundry room is located on the ground floor of Delta, and is open for use for all residents at Campus Vestfold Student Housing.

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.

Fire alarm system

It is very important for your safety and the safety of others that you have familiarised yourself with the fire alarm system in your student residence. You can find information about the fire alarm system that applies to you on My page under Fire information. We would like you to read this and tick off that the information has been read and understood.

There are also notices in the student accommodation that provide you with information.

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.

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.
