Parking at the University of Oslo

Parking is only permitted in marked parking spaces, and with a valid parking permit.  Parking inside the area delimited by the campus barriers is not permitted.

Parking space is scarce at all UiO Campuses. Therefore, UiO encourages visitors, students, and employees to use public transport to get to UiO.
