Most international students stay at Sørnesvågen village, which is about a 5-minute walk from campus. Most rooms at Sørnesvågen are furnished. Also Sunde-bygget, located on campus, is a preferred housing option for exchange students. Please note that it is required to buy your own mattress at Sunde-bygget.
Exchange students from partner universities are normally given priority on student housing. However, we cannot guarantee accommodation in the cheapest or preferred category.
