On Sunday, Norway’s Arctic student organization opened the new student housing in Longyearbyen on Svalbard.
The new homes were built as a replacement for homes that were located in a landslide-prone area, where two people died in a landslide in 2015, Norwegian Broadcasting (NRK) writes.
Due to complications resulting from the thawing permafrost in the archipelago, the construction project has cost NOK 400 million.
