Many of those studying at Svalbard are visited by their family or friends during their studies.

Students who rent from Samskipnaden at Campus Svalbard have exclusive access to rent apartments from us for their guests, at a very low price*.

Unfortunately, it is not possible to have guests living in our student housing. In the same way, as with a hotel room, it is the number of tenants stated by the lease who can spend the night in the room/apartment.

There are both safety (in the event of accidents or evacuation) and operational (cleaning, ventilation, and so on) reasons why we need an overview of tenants in the building. You also need to consider the other tenants with whom you share a kitchen and common areas. A large influx of guests will inconvenience the people you live with. Therefore, we feel compelled to maintain a clear line that does not allow overnight guests in our housing.

* We have a limited number of apartments available, so we recommend applying early. Particularly for the most popular months of March through April.


Norwegian law states that parts (the bolt) of the weapon and all ammunition must be kept in a safe.
