Before arrival:

Norwegian Study Permit

New international students should apply for a Norwegian study permit (also called residence permit) as soon as possible after admission is granted.

Study permits are not required for citizens of EU/EEA/EFTA countries. Instead, they should complete a registration process after arrival in Norway.

Student housing

If you need student accommodation we recommend you to contact the Student Housing Office as soon as possible after admission is granted. You will need your admission letter from NMBU to be able to apply. When you receive this letter, you will be given further instruction on how to proceed. 

Key retrieval

If arriving after opening hours, make sure to contact the Student Housing Office or the House Lady/Man to make arrangements to collect your room keys. This is if you have arranged accomodation through SiÅs student residences.
