Housing for employees

Photo for infrastructure

Norges arktiske studentsamskipnad manages housing rentals for employees on behalf of UiT.

UiT has a limited number of rental properties and the number of housing applicants is greater than access to dwellings. We therefore recommend all our applicants to look for housing outside UiT's offer at the same time as they have an application with us.

Assuming that there are dwellings vacant, the allocation will take place according to the current criteria for the allocation of housing for employees at UiT.

We also have short-term rentals for visiting researchers and other visitors at UiT.

Application for housing

Applications for housing are processed on an ongoing basis. Right now there is a waiting list. It is not possible to apply for a specific apartment or location, as allocation must take place based on what is available. To be sure that we have all the correct contact - information, it is the resident who must apply/registrate for a housing. 

When allocating a dwelling, it will nevertheless be taken into account the wishes/needs that the applicant states in the application, if possible.

To apply for rent of housing, please send an online application via Norges arktiske studentsamskipnad`s  website: Norges arktiske studentsamskipnad (samskipnaden.no) and include the UiT application form: (- use this PDF form until the online form is in place). We also need a purcase.
