International students from outside of the EU and the EEA who are spending a minimum of one semester at the University of Agder are guaranteed student accommodation in shared or single rooms. Students from within the EU and the EEA are also eligible for housing and their applications are welcomed.
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 only basic furniture. No kitchen equipment, 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 you will be offered your first choice of accommodation and SiA reserves the right to assign a different type of apartment than the one which you have applied for.
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.
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 in addition to your first rent payment.
