International students who are spending a minimum of one semester at the University of Agder are guaranteed student accommodation in shared or single rooms. Together with your letter of acceptance, you will receive a reservation code and details on how to apply for your accommodation. Please do not apply for accommodation before receiving this information.
Please have a look at the SiA webpage to see the different types of accommodation that are available in Kristiansand and Grimstad.
Please note that:
The rooms are modest with basic furniture only. No kitchen and cooking utensils, duvets, pillows or towels are available in the student dorms. You have to bring your own or purchase the items upon arrival. (A shopping trip is arranged during orientation!)
Please note that SiA cannot guarantee that there is availability in your first choice of accommodation and that SiA reserves the right to assign a different type of apartment than the one for which you have applied.
Contracts have to be signed upon offer of accommodation and usually cover one or two full semesters. Should you wish to terminate your contract, one month’s notice calculated from the first day of the ensuing month, is required.
SiA must be notified of any change in the date of arrival or departure as soon as possible.
All SiA student dorms are rented out without any bedding, kitchen equipment, etc.
International students have the opportunity to order a package with pillow, duvet and bed linen, which will be ready in your room when you arrive. SiA will contact you via email with information on how to order this package after you have accepted your housing contract. You will be billed for this on your first rent payment.
