A total of 14,205 students are on a waiting list for student accommodation, a survey from the Student Welfare Organization shows.
This is a decrease from pre-pandemic levels, when there were more than 17,000 students on the waiting list from time to time, the Student Welfare Organization wrote in a press release.
Much of the decrease is due to the fact that the Student Welfare Organization in Gjøvik, Ålesund, and Trondheim no longer has waiting lists. The longest waiting list is unsurprisingly at the Student Welfare Organization in Oslo, where a total of 6,431 people are waiting for student accommodation.
There are also more than 1,000 students in the queue at the Student Welfare Organization in Western Norway (2,680) and Norway’s Arctic Student Welfare Organization (1,965).
According to the press release, 16,322 students have received a contract for new student accommodation.
