For those of you arriving at the airport we will meet you to the right of the arrival hall next to Peppes Pizza. If you arrive directly at the central station we will meet you inside by the big screen (clock) close to Burger King and the ticket machines. We will wear red UiO t-shirts, so you will be able to see us.

  • We will start by getting metro cards. Make sure to bring a print-out of your Letter of admission (in Søknadsweb) or the student ID as documentation that you are a student at UiO to get the student discount (for students below the age of 30).
  • Then we take the metro to the SiO Centre to pick up housing keys.
  • There will always be someone at the central station to greet you. Groups of students will be guided by us whenever there is a good number of people.
  • You should also read this: /english/studies/international-students/on-arrival/getting-to-uio.html

It is very easy to get to the Oslo Central Station (Oslo S) from the airports close to Oslo (Gardermoen, Torp and Rygge).

NB: The form is not a mandatory or binding registration. The International Student Reception made this to get an overview over the arrival of new international students 9 August, so we can prepare to make your arrival in Oslo a comfortable experience.
