Step-by-step information about the application process
Select the student housing options you wish to apply for. Your selected options will appear in your shopping basket. The more you apply for, the greater your chances of being allocated student housing. However, you should not apply for student housing you don’t want to live in. If you receive an offer of student housing but decline, your application will be cancelled. If that happens, you will need to reapply and start at the back of the queue.
Click on the shopping basket (your housing preferences) and Proceed to application.
You can prioritize the student housing you most want to live in under My housing preferences. Check that the housing is in the same town/city as you will study in.
Fill in customer information.
Fill in details, including your preferred moving in date, under Application information. If you wish to move in August, you will normally be notified if you have been allocated housing in June/July. If you apply to move in June or July (or another month), you will be allocated housing if and when suitable housing becomes vacant.
If you are a first-year student and have not yet received written confirmation that you have been admitted to a programme, you can jump over the point about documentation. Other applicants may attach documentation of paid semester fee, academic progress, etc.
Check that everything is correct and then submit your application!
After submitting your application, an e-mail will be sent to the e-mail address stated in your application (please ensure this is correct when you apply) confirming your application has been received. If you don’t receive a confirmation e-mail, please contact the Housing Office.
To ensure our applicant lists are as up to date as possible, it is important that you renew your application every second month. You will receive an e-mail and/or a message in the app when it’s time to renew your application. If you don’t renew your application, it will be cancelled.
Our student housing is allocated continuously as the students move out. If you applied earlier and are under 23, you have a good chance of being allocated student housing. If you receive an offer, it will be sent via e-mail and in the app. If you applied late and are over 23, it may be a good idea to start searching on the private market as well.
You will remain on the waiting list until you are allocated student housing or choose not to renew your application.
Remember to accept any offer of student housing within the stipulated deadline. If you decline, your application will be cancelled.
You can accept an offer of student housing before you know whether you have been admitted to a programme at UiT. If you are not admitted, or choose to study elsewhere, please advise us within one week of the notification from the Norwegian Universities and Colleges Admission Service (NUCAS). We will then annul your tenancy agreement free of charge and refund your deposit.
You do this in the app or on The Housing portal on the website.
Pay the deposit within five days of signing your tenancy agreement and before the moving in date. If we have not paid your deposit, you will not be able to pick up your key. Pick your key up at the Housing Office on the campus, unless otherwise arranged. If you need to pick up your key outside our opening hours, please contact us well in advance.
