Travel, Accommodation and WiFi access

Getting from Oslo airport Gardermoen to the hotel and BI

From Oslo airport to Oslo central station:
The fastest and best way is to use the airport express train Flytoget, it will take you in less than 20 minutes to Oslo central station ("Oslo Sentralstasjon, Jernbanetorget"), while a taxi takes around 50 minutes. You need to purchase a ticket for the airport express train prior to boarding to facilitate reimbursement. There are ticket machines just outside the barriers before descending to the platform.

Note that BI does not reimburse taxis from the airport to the city and does not reimburse Uber rides in Oslo.

From Oslo central station to the hotel, you have two options:

  • Take a taxi.
  • The metro (“T-bane”) will take you to the hotel in less than 15 minutes. To get from “Jernbanetorget T” (the subway stop at the central station) to “Nydalen” (the subway stop right in front of BI), you can take:
    • Line no. 4 to Vestli via Majorstuen (westbound)
    • Line no. 5 to Ringen via Majorstuen (westbound) – not to Sognsvann!
    • Line no. 5 to Ringen via Toyen (eastbound) Get off at the stop “Nydalen”.

The conference venue, BI Norwegian Business School, is just 200 meters from the hotel.

Conference hotel: Thon Hotel Storo, Vitaminveien 23, 0485 Oslo. Phone: (+47) 23 400 200.
