Anyone can rent a student cabin. The cabins are run by various student associations, and you must contact the individual cabin to see if it is vacant.

  • Housing through SiO:

All students admitted to degree studies or exchange programs at the University of Oslo can apply for student housing through SiO Housing. Unfortunately, due to limited number of available student housing, we cannot confirm that all international students will be guaranteed housing through SiO.

As an international master student you will be on UiOs prioritised housing list, given that you have applied for SiO housing within the deadline and followed our guidelines on how to apply for housing. Please note that if you have accepted a housing offer and choose not to come, you must notify SiO housing and cancel your housing contract. Failure to do so may result in a fee.

  • Furnished or unfurnished room?

  • All furnished rooms include a bed, closet, desk, chair, bookshelf, and a table.
  • All unfurnished single rooms are unequipped. You will have to obtain essentials such as a bed, desk, chair etc. on your own.

The price of rent will vary depending on location, room size and whether you have shared kitchen/bathroom facilities or not. Most students pay somewhere between NOK 4,000 and 7,000 NOK in rent on a monthly basis. There are many options around Oslo for accommodation other than the university housing:

  • Citybox Oslo: This hotel in the center of Oslo is more like a self-service supermarket. There’s no reception desk.

Rates from NOK 590.

  • Perminalen: This hotel opened in 1954 for Norwegian soldiers on leave in the capital. It’s now available for anyone to book. The rooms are basic but of a high standard including en suite and TV. Single rooms from NOK 685.

After Graduation

Norway is generally considered an attractive country for international students with high-quality education and a range of scholarships.
However, students coming to the country often get the right to stay here through a study permit.

While the study permit is only a temporary residence option, several permit options are available to those who are about to graduate from a Norwegian university. “Several residence permits can be applied for after achieving a degree or diploma in Norway that may give the applicant a continued stay in Norway based on a new residence permit.

  • Job seeker permits: this permit may be granted to students who have recently graduated in Norway, permit has a maximum duration of one year, and the purpose of the stay must be being a job seeker for skilled work.
  • Residence permits for skilled workers: It’s important to know that this is a work permit which requires that the applicant is ‘skilled,’ and it comes with the condition that the applicant has a Bachelor’s degree as a minimum and that the offered work in Norway is relevant and requires the applicant’s competence and higher education.
  • Study/researcher permits: If a student is admitted to a study program of a higher level than their previous level of studies, a “renewed residence permit as a student may be granted.” PhD Studies or researcher work with own funds/employed researcher work may also “give grounds for a new residence permit if the conditions are considered as met.” However, if a student fails to fulfil the conditions to be granted a new residence permit, they must leave Norway after completing their studies.
