Welcome to the housing site for Norges arktiske studentsamskipnad
Here you will find information about all of our student hostels, and have the possibility to apply for accommodation.
Eligibility for student accommodation
Everyone who is or will be a student at the Norges arktiske universitet - UiT - or at UNIS has the opportunity to rent a place to live as long as there is availability.
Information by e-mail
We would like to point out that you will receive important messages from us by e-mail, and that you should check out the spam mail regularly to see if there is any mail from us there.
See to that such e-mail from our e-mail address is validated. Under the menu bar "spam mail", choose "never block the sender domain".
International students who have applied to UiT within the application deadline, are given the opportunity to reserve a single room in a student hostel. A room will be reserved upon request only. For more information; www.samskipnaden.no
Signing with BankID In order to sign the rental contract electronically, the menu “Signer” must be used. This choice activates the BankID signature program from BBS (Bankenes Betalingssentral). Follow the instruction from the guide and you will be led through the signature process step by step. Signing with help from BankID is easy, safe, and as binding as a handwritten signature on paper.
Signing a contract without BankID If you dont`t have BankID or want to sign with a handwritten signature for another reason, the process is as follows:
1. Download the rental contract (PDF-document) by choosing the menu choice “Last ned” (download) and print two copies of the rental contract 2. Sign one copy and return to Norges arktiske studensamskpnad (the return address is given in the rental contract)
Application for internal transfer cannot be registered during the first or last month of the contract period. If you are offered a transfer to another housing, you will have to pay a fee of NOK 1000.- This fee is non-refundable, even if you should reject the offer of exchange.
