Before arrival

Application procedures and deadlines

(This information may change for exchange students applying for accommodation spring 2021. More information coming soon)

In order to apply for student housing, you must use a code. This code will be provided to you during your application process. Do not apply for housing without this code. Your application may be deleted if you do not enter the code when applying. We recommend that you apply as soon as you receive your code. 

Due to the precarious housing situation in the Stavanger area we cannot guarantee housing.

Here is a video on how to apply.

Nursing students coming here on short term on practice placement, will apply in a different way. Information on how to apply will be sendt to nursing students by e-mail.

What should you bring?

As no dishes, cooking utensils, duvet, pillow or towels are available in the accommodations, you have to bring your own or purchase the items upon arrival. The department store IKEA is a good option for purchasing these items here in Stavanger.

Householder insurance

It is recommended, but not mandatory, that you take out a householder insurance for your personal belongings together with your travel insurance.

As a tenant, you are responsible for your accommodation, and this is irrespective of whether or not you or your friends are to blame for any damage. Furthermore, no consideration can be taken in relation to whether the damage was caused by a deliberate act, through carelessness or by accident. As the legal tenant, you will be held responsible for payment. Neither the SiS or UiS can be held responsible for any theft or loss of your personal possessions.
