Switching rooms and subletting

Switching room or apartment

There is no termination period when you move from one housing to another housing within Sit, but you must be on schedule with your payments. If you want to move to another Sit housing, you must log in to bolig.sit.no where you have your contract and book the new room/apartment you want. This also applies if you want to switch to another room within your current flat. Sign the new contract. Then you terminate the contract on your current housing and enter your desired contract end date (the earliest contract end date on the current contract must be the same date as the new lease starts). If you need more than one day to move, you can adjust the contract end date accordingly. You pay double rent only for those days you have two active leases. You will be refunded any previously paid deposit within 8 weeks after the end of the contract.

Subletting

Subletting means that you let another student live in your room or in your apartment, while you are still registered as the tenant and fully responsible if something should happen during the subletting period. The person you sublet to, must be a student. Subletting must be approved by Sit in advance. If you want to sublet your home, you must send an e-mail with the following information about the sublessor to [email protected]:

• Name

• Telephone number

• Email

• Sublease period

• Proof that the sub-lessee is a student (student identification card, etc.)

Recommendations

Sit Bolig makes it possible for friends to move in together in the same shared apartment.

Recommend a friend into the shared apartment

If a room in the shared apartment becomes vacant and you want a friend to move in, you must do the following:

  • Find the right housing at bolig.sit.no and ask your friend to join the interested list for the room in question (not the entire student village). As soon as the room is free, your friend will be notified that it is available, and can then go and book it directly.
  • NB! Note that there may be others who have registered as interested in the room in question. It is therefore important to book it quickly, as it is first come, first served.

Living with friends

If you and one or more of your friends want to move in together, do the following:

  • Log in to bolig.sit.no and find a shared apartment in the overview that has several available rooms.
  • Either you can send links of other rooms in the same shared apartment to the others you want to live with, or you can all sit together and each choose your own room in the same shared apartment.
  • You can see if there are other vacant rooms in the shared apartment by entering a room, scroll down the page, under «other rooms in the shared apartment». There you can see if a room is vacant or not.

Please be aware that it can take a very long time for a shared apartment to be completely vacated. We recommend that you choose vacant rooms in different apartments if you can't find enough vacancies in one apartment. You can then take your time looking for rooms in the same shared apartment together without worrying about not having a room at all. Please note there is no notice period when moving between rooms in Sit, but you will briefly have to pay two deposits, due to how the booking process works.
