All our single units and most of the apartments* are equipped with some furniture and equipment, but there are also some things you must remember to bring yourself.

*Couples apartments in Vestfold are partly furnished.

This is what you should bring when moving into student housing:

What you must bring with you, of course, are clothes and personal belongings. In addition to this, it is a good idea to bring:

  1. Duvet, pillow, bed linen and towels.

  2. All kitchen equipment: Table ware, glasses, cutlery, pots, frying pans, utensils, ovenproof dish, mixing bowls, etc.

  3. Electrical gadgets such as coffee machine/coffee maker, kettle (in many of the large communal kitchens there is a Quooker, so check first on the site for the property you are moving to, if you need a kettle), waffle iron, stand mixer, toaster etc.

  4. Bucket, broom, vacuum cleaner, detergents, cloths for use in your own unit and in the shared kitchen/bathroom.

Buy second hand!

There are loads of barely used kitchen equipment in second-hand shops! Here you can bargain!

You can find electrical gadgets such as kettles, hand blenders and coffee makers at Tise and finn.no

Psssst! Many of our housing areas have a swap shelf or swap room! Here you can find gently used items such as kitchen utensils, crockery, kettles, coffee makers, decorations, etc. Read more about the swap shelves here.

What is in the apartment/unit?

All our dorms and most of our apartments are furnished. Couples apartments in Vestfold are partly furnished (there is no bed or sofa in Campus Vestfold Student Housing, Klokkergården and Åsgårdstrand in Vestfold).

The type of furniture available varies from place to place, but bed, wardrobes, basic lighting, coat hooks and white goods such as fridges and cookers are available everywhere except in the couples apartments mentioned above.

Our housing selector gives you an overview of what equipment is available in the different types of dorms and flats. Once you have been allocated a property and know what type of accommodation you have been allocated, you can see what equipment is included in that particular type of accommodation.

You are not allowed to remove any furniture from your residence, but you can bring and add what you can.
