Travel and accommodation


Visitor accommodation in Ås is limited. We can recommend Ås guesthouse, a 15-20 minutes walk from NMBU.

Alternatively, visitors may stay in Oslo (30 minutes by train), Ski (5 minutes by train or 15 minutes by bus) or Drøbak (25 minutes by bus). Use, hotelopia or to find good deals. For hotels in Oslo, make sure that they are close to train station Oslo S/Jernbanetorget or Nationalteatret.


Oslo Airport to Ås

There is a direct bus from the airport (Flybussen) that leaves at 10 minutes past the hour, approximately every hour (every two hours on Saturday) and takes about 55 minutes. This is bus F11 to Fredrikstad, leaving in front of the arrival hall. You will get out at the first stop Korsegården. Ask the bus driver to order a taxi from Korsegården busstop to Ås/NMBU. Alternatively, it is an easy 20 minute walk from Korsegården to NMBU.

Oslo Airport to Oslo

The airport express train (Flytoget) from Oslo Airport to Oslo S leaves every 10 minutes, and takes ca 20 minutes. Tickets can be bought at the machines, or you can swipe a credit card at the gate. Note: these tickets will only get you to Oslo S; you must buy a separate ticket Oslo to Ås.

Alternatively, there are local trains from the airport to Oslo: the R11 (towards Skien/Larvik), L12 (towards Kongsberg) and R10 train (towards Drammen). These are less frequent, but are half the price and you can buy a ticket straight from the airport to Ås. Tickets can be bought at machines, with credit card or cash payment.
