Study at BI

Housing for international students

BI is proud to offer a housing guarantee for international students. In cooperation with three different student housing providers, international students can choose from housing locations all over Oslo.

Would you like to live at the edge of the forest, with serene lake Sognsvann as your neighbour? Or do you prefer to live in the city centre with caf├ęs, shops and theatres at your doorstep?

Thanks to the BI housing guarantee, the choice is yours. Our three partners, SiO, Diakonhjemmet and BSN, offer affordable single rooms in student housing units across the city.

Student housing is generally the most affordable accommodation you will find in Oslo and also one of the best ways to meet new people. You can quickly build your social network and make new friends by living exactly where so many other students choose to live.
Student housing

The following student groups are guaranteed student housing, provided that they apply through BI and follow the application guidelines:

  • 1st year international BBA and MSc students moving to Norway for the first time
  • Exchange students
  • Double Degree students

Please note that PhD candidates are not classified as students at BI. Therefore, we do not provide housing for PhD candidates.
