Exchange students can not apply without pre-booking code from the University.  Please wait until you have received this. Phd and Phd Fellows are not considered as students and do not need pre-booking code.

As a student via International Office at UiA you are guaranteed housing, however we are not always able to provide your preferred choice. We will assign housing based on availability.   

Your application will be valid for 30 days. We will remind you by email when the 30 days are almost over. Log in and activate your application for another 30 days.

In June, July and August the application will be valid for only 14 days. If your application is not activated within deadline, it will be cancelled.
