Upon admission, students at NMBU-Campus Ås are given instructions on how to apply for accommodation provided by SiÅs (University Foundation for Student Life). SiÅs is a student-owned organization responsible for various services for students, such as on-campus housing, cafeterias and the bookstore.
Private Housing Off-campus
Private housing options can be considered and investigated from the very beginning. You might also consider other locations than Ås. For example Ski (7 minutes from Ås with train/car), Vestby (8 minutes from Ås with train/car) and Oslo (30 minutes from Ås with train/car). The train station in Ås is about 15 minutes walk to campus.
