UiA has no separate housing service for incoming academic staff. Your faculty may be able to help you make arrangements for short-term accommodation if necessary, please speak to the contact person at your faculty.
The Euraxess web portal for incoming researchers has an updated list of housing websites and real estate agents in Norway.
PhD students may apply for single room student accommodation. The PhD coordinator at each faculty is responsible for booking accommodation for their incoming PhD students with the International Education Office by 1 June (autumn semester) / 1 November (spring semester) at the latest.
Please note that UiA can only offer single rooms with shared bathroom / kitchen for one person. PhD students who wish to bring their family will have to arrange accommodation themselves.
PhD students enrolled in the Quota/NUFU/NORAD programmes who receive funding from the State Educational Loan Fund (Lånekassen) are charged the same rent as other students, provided that they pay the student registration fee each semester. Other PhD students who are also employed by the university must pay a higher rent (+30%) than students on government-funded scholarships.
UiA is EU-certified
The University of Agder was the first university in Norway to have been awarded the ECTS-label, a certificate proving that the university follows the EU’s recommended quality assurance routines for information about and approval of student exchange.
