Moreover, eFaktura is environmentally-friendly – because it does not require paper, printing or transport.
The tenancy period follows the academic year, i.e. 1 August to 31 July. This means that all our tenants receive a contract that applies from the moving in date until 31 July. However, it is important to note that, well before your tenancy agreement expires, you will be offered an one-year extension at the same address providing you wish to renew the agreement and that you still fulfil the terms and conditions. These terms and conditions are that studying is your main occupation and that you have not exceeded the maximum residential time of 5 years (6 years if you have been delayed).
This means that in most cases you may retain the same student housing for your entire study period, even though the Student Welfare Organisation offers tenancy agreements which may be terminated and include time limits.
Det er lov å fremleie studentboligen om man er borte i forbindelse med studiene, som for eksempel utveksling. Den nye leietakeren må være student og ha gyldig studentbevis. Kontraktsholderen er ansvarlig for bolig, møblement og eiendommen i fremleieperioden. Det må på forhånd søkes om fremleie i eget dokument som leveres på Servicetorget. Det er ikke anledning til å legge ut studentboligen på Airbnb, eller lignende nettsider.
Leiekontraktens pkt. 10 – Fremleie og opptak i husstand sier blant annet at:
«Leier har ikke adgang til å fremleie eller på annen måte overlate
sin bruksrett til andre eller oppta personer i sin husstand uten forutgående skriftlig tillatelse fra Utleier, jf. Husleieloven § 11-2 annet og tredje ledd. Det samme gjelder korttidsleie i ferier ol. Samlet framleie kan ikke overstige 6 – seks- måneder i løpet av den totale botiden. Fremleietaker må også være student ved UiT Norges arktiske universitet eller Unis, og ha betalt semesteravgiften for hele leieperioden. Rett til å leie faller bort ved avbrutte eller avsluttede studier. Videre plikter fremleietaker å være enig i å informere Utleier om avbrutte eller avsluttede studier.»
Dette betyr at det ikke er anledning til å drive med utleie gjennom airbnb og heller ikke fremleie uten at Samskipnaden har gitt sin skriftlige tillatelse. I tillegg må altså fremleietaker være student. Brudd på bestemmelsene er å regne som kontraktsbrudd, og kan føre til oppsigelse av leiekontrakt.

Yes, you can apply to change your student housing via the Housing portal. Applications for change of student housing cannot be registered in the first or last month of the tenancy period. If your request is granted, an administration fee of NOK 600 will be charged. Please note that this fee will not be refunded if you decline the offer of change of student housing.
Facts about changing student housing:
You continue living in your student housing while you are on the waiting list. Owing to the high demand, priority is not given to changing of student housing during the summer months. As soon as you have accepted the offer of new student housing, your original tenancy agreement will be terminated automatically. Moreover, your old student housing will be reallocated to another student. An offer of change of student housing can come at short notice. When you are allocated new student housing, you will pay rent for both flats/rooms for a few days during the overlap. A maximum of two days is permitted for moving out/in. You can collect the key for the new student housing after 12 noon on the day the new tenancy agreement starts.
Tenancy agreements are issued for up to one academic year at a time. When the agreement expires, you will be notified by e-mail and you can apply to renew your tenancy agreement on the Housing portal. The application deadline is 1 May (spring) and 1 November (autumn). The maximum residential time is 5 years.
You may terminate your tenancy agreement before it expires by giving written notice via the Housing portal. The period of notice is two months, reckoned from the 1st of the month after notice was given. Please note that you must pay the rent for the entire period of notice, even if you move out earlier. The student housing must be returned cleaned and tidied, and the cleaning service will conduct an inspection to confirm this. If the student housing is deemed not to be adequately cleaned, the cleaning service will rectify this, and the tenant will be charged for the costs incurred. An agency may be engaged to do this if we do not have the capacity to perform the work. Furthermore, costs incurred to fix any damages/defects will also be charged. You will be notified of any deductions to be made from the deposit in advance.
Remember to empty your storage room before you move.
During the periods when many students move out, we arrange large containers so residents can dispose of their rubbish. You can also borrow a waste disposal card at our service centre. This card enables you to dispose of larger items, such as damaged furniture, free of charge at the Remiks recycling centre. NB: Remember to sort the waste in advance.

You can collect your key at the Housing Office at your campus after 12 noon on the first day of the tenancy agreement. Another person may collect your key on your behalf, but we require written notification in advance by e-mail (write “Issuing of keys” in the subject field). The tenancy agreement must be signed, and the deposit paid, before you can collect the key.
The Housing Office is open on weekdays from 09.00 - 15.30 (9 a.m. – 3.30 p.m.).
Keys must be returned to the student housing office no later than the date of expiry of the tenancy agreement.

The removal of furniture from the student housing is not permitted. However, if there is space, you may bring your own furniture in addition. Please note the use of gas ovens in the student housing is not permitted (for either heating or cooking).
You may hang up pictures if you use Blu-Tack or similar, or plastic hooks with fastening tape. You can also hang up lighter objects providing you do not make holes or marks on the wall. Refer to Section 7.1 of the tenancy agreement.
The washing and drying of clothes must take place at the laundry the tenant has at his/her disposal. Drying clothes in your room/flat creates a lot of dampness, which in turn leads to a poor indoor climate. Consequently, we encourage you to dry your clothes in the clothes dryer at the laundry. Tenants are not permitted to install washing machines/clothes dryers in their flat. However, the exceptions to this rule are the student flats where outlets have been installed for this purpose.
One’s own student housing
Tenants are responsible for cleaning and tidying their own room/flat. Tenants are also obliged to cooperate with the other users to keep any common areas (bathrooms, corridors, etc.) clean. In cases where several tenants share a bathroom, those concerned should follow the schedule of who has responsibility for the cleaning each week.
Communal kitchen, lounge and corridor
Each tenant shall clean and tidy the communal kitchen and other common areas after use. All kitchen utensils, cutlery, etc. shall be placed in the respective cupboards and drawers. Tenants shall also keep their kitchen cupboard/drawer and space in the fridge/freezer, clean and tidy. Everyone is responsible for ensuring that rubbish is properly sorted in accordance with the current recycling guidelines, and that the rubbish is emptied daily and placed in the rubbish container.
In cases where there are multiple users, a schedule shall be set up showing who has responsibility for cleaning each week. If a tenant will away when he/she is responsible for cleaning, it’s his/her responsibility to swap internally. Keep the rubbish cupboard clean and tidy, wash the floor, clean the ventilator, wash the fronts of the kitchen fittings, refrigerator and freezer and wash the stove/oven. The Student Welfare Organisation will conduct regular inspections of common areas. In cases of inadequate cleaning, the tenants concerned will be given an opportunity to clean properly. If on the next inspection the cleaning is still found to be inadequate, the Student Welfare Organisation will arrange professional cleaning of the common areas at the tenants’ expense.
About parking, internet, insurance and pricing
Car parking spaces are available at most student housing. Parking is free for residents, but you require a valid parking permit. You can get a permit at the Housing Office.

What do I do if I discover a leak, fire, pests or lose my key?
If there is a leak or other water damage in your student housing, it’s important to get assistance as soon as possible. In the case of leakage, you must turn off the main water shutoff valve if you know where it is. When you have turned off the water supply, it’s important to wipe up the water as quickly as possible.
If the problem occurs during our opening hours, which are weekdays from 08.00 - 15.30 (8 a.m. – 3.30 p.m.), please contact the Housing Office on +47 77 64 90 00.
If the water damage occurs outside our opening hours, and if such a nature that cannot wait until the next day, please contact the security company at your campus.
All student housing units are equipped with a smoke detector and fire extinguisher. Familiarise yourself with the fire safety instructions and fire extinguishing equipment at your student housing. Removing or covering the smoke detector is strictly forbidden.
If suspicion arises that something is wrong with the fire protection equipment in the building, the Student Welfare Organisation has the right to unlock and enter the student housing without prior notice. The removal/covering of fire detectors will incur a fee. Refer to the Price list for supplementary services. You are responsible for familiarising yourself with the fire safety instructions as well as the evacuation plan for the building in which you live.
It’s important that you notify the Student Welfare Organisation if you discover any faults concerning the fire safety, e.g. if you notice that a fire extinguisher has been removed, etc.
Emergency exits and escape routes should always be kept clear. Storing personal belongings in stairwells, entrances and corridors is not permitted. Any personal belongings found in such places will be removed and disposed of by the Student Welfare Organisation
The Student Welfare Organisation changes the batteries in smoke detectors on an annual basis. Fire extinguishers must not be removed from the designated place.
In the event of fire:
Ensure that everyone who is in the student housing gets out safety, Close doors and windows.
Call the fire brigade on the emergency number 110. Give the exact address of the building that is on fire.
If the fire has not become too large, try to extinguish it using the fire hose or fire extinguisher, but do not put yourself in danger.
Avoid inhaling smoke. Some inhalation is one of the most common fire-related causes of death, so get out of the building as quickly as possible. As smoke rises, you should crawl along the ground as there is more oxygen there. If it’s dark, use the wall to guide you to the nearest exit.
Advice to avoid undesired alarm
Cooking fumes, using toasters and candles can trigger the smoke detectors. Never place toasters or candles below smoke detectors. Ensure adequate ventilation and always use the kitchen fan when cooking. Close the kitchen door when fumes occur in the kitchen. Steam does not affect all types of smoke detectors.
Lit candles or hotplates that are turned on must never be left unattended. Make it a habit to blow out candles/turn off hotplates as soon as you have finished using them.
A resident who triggers a fire alarm leading to a call-out by the security company affiliated with the campus will be charged for the costs incurred and may be evicted.
Please contact the Housing Office. You will be invoiced for the new key/key card/chip.
If the key/chip stops working, the amount paid will be reimbursed to the student (unless it is a case of wilful damage of the keys). If you do not return the keys on the date you move out, you will be charged for new keys.
If you have seen pests at your student housing, please contact the service centre or notify the caretaker service (via the Housing Portal). As students travel more than other sections of the population, there is unfortunately a higher risk of someone bringing back pests with them.
