Use your PC or mobile phone to let visitors in through the main entrance!

You can easily unlock doors via My key card on My page. Here you have the oppurtunity to unlock all the doors you have access to through your rental agreement with SSN. It is also this feature you can use to open the door when guests arrive.

You can also open the front door by calling 948 48 156, but only from a Norwegian phone. 

There is a newly renovated common room (2023) on the ground floor, which is available to all residents. Here there is a table with seating for about 14, as well as a sofa group, a large screen, two good chairs and a shelf with various board games. The room is at the very end of the hallway on the left. There is an exit to the back garden from the common room.

There is a lift in the building. 

The building is located on Kaldnes pier close to Tønsberg brygge (pier), popular nightclubs for students and Tønsberg centre. The nearest grocery store is located on the basement floor of the building and the bus stops right outside the student residence. Plenty of public transport to the University which is located about 15 km from Kaldnes.

Cable in router dir-810

Internet via cable

A router from SSN (Dlink DIR-810L) has been placed in your apartment. To use a wired connection, you must connect the device you wish to use through this. Use one or more of the black ports marked 1-4. The yellow port marked "Internet" must be plugged into the wall outlet.

The router is fully configured by us and must not be reset/changed.
We recommend that you use network cables of the standard cat5e or newer.

Dlink, private wireless network

The router that is located in your apartment is a WiFi router. To connect to the wireless network in your apartment, you need to find the SSID (network name) and password for your router. This information is located on the back of the router (in the upper left corner in the white field).


This is the guest network for USN. When you connect to this you will see guidance on how to register for 12 hours access.

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 only in public areas

These wireless networks are only 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.
