Paying the rent

Your rent and other charges are invoiced monthly and are due on the 20th of every month. Sit does not issue paper invoices. If you do not have a Norwegian bank account and use eFaktura, you must log in to to access your invoice.


All our rooms and apartments are non-smoking, and you are not allowed to smoke anywhere, including the common areas.


All tenants bringing motor vehicles must have a parking permission. You get one by contacting our office. The permission must be placed clearly visible in the front window of the vehicle. The cost of the parking permission is added to your invoice and billed monthly. Parking permissions are issued according to the first-come-fist-served-principle, since there is a limited amount of parking spaces available.


If energy is not included in the rent, it will be billed monthly with an estimated amount. The actual energy use is controlled and calculated once a year, or upon moving out.


You are responsible for cleaning your own room and apartment, and, along with you co-habitants, for cleaning the shared kitchen and living room. Tenants must thoroughly clean all common areas once a year.

All student housings have a TV service from the cable company GET (except Gamle Kallerud gård, Berghusvegen 10 and 12, and Merkantilveien 8, who are served by RiksTV). If you wish to have additional TV channels, call Eidsiva broadband (tel. 03370), and use customer no. 10119. You must pay for additonal channels yourself. The price is NOK 149/229 per month, depending on your digital decoder. There is also an additional, one time fee of NOK 299.

Sit’s insurances cover the buildings only, and does not cover our tenants’ belongings. We strongly encourage every tenant to get home insurance.

Storage rooms

All tenants have access to storage rooms, with the exception of Sørbyen student housing where only some apartments have access to a storage room. All storage rooms are labeled with the apartment no. or the number of the shared kitchen. Tenants must supply their own padlocks for storage rooms without preinstalled locks. Do not place valuable items in your storage room, and always make sure it is securely locked.


There is a fire drill at each of our student housings once a year. Always keep up to date on escape routes in case of fire, and the use of fire extinguishing equipment. Take responsibility for you own safety, and the safety of other.
