When you move in to our housing, you must remember to change address thru Altinn.no and Posten.no.
You will find necessary address information on your contract.
Your mailbox is located differently depending on the area you live in.
The mailbox is marked with House/address/room number.
- Storgata: The mailbox is found inside the Joker store in Storgata 97. It is marked with your house number and room number, ex: 06-632. Remember: You shall not put name on the mailbox. The name is on the back side of the mailbox as it is a mail room behind it. The housing office takes care of it after you have moved in.
- Københavngata: The mailbox is found inside the mail room in the 1st floor. The door is to the left when you enter the student entrance. You must put your name on your mailbox in order to receive mail.
- Trondheimsveien: The mailbox is located in the basement (one floor down from entrance). You must put your name on your mailbox in order to receive mail.
- Wilsesgate: The mailbox is located outside the building. You must put your name on your mailbox in order to receive mail.
- Gøteborggata: The mailbox is inside the corridor by the main entrance. You must put your name on your mailbox in order to receive mail.
- Sandakerveien 76 A eller B: The mailbox is inside the main entrance in building B. You must put your name on your mailbox in order to receive mail.
Important information from the post office:
Mail to the mailbox which is not clearly marked with legible name of the tenant will be sent back to the sender. Please refer to Post ACT§ 19, Post Regulations § 14.
If handwritten name tags are used (which Norway Post does not recommend), block letters and clear writings must be used, in legible size. It is also an advantage if you ask your connections to include house number in the address (example: Kari Student, House number H0201, Studentbyveien 1, 0123 Oslo). Then you facilitate the work for the postman and ensure that the mail arrives as quickly as possible.
