Speakers at the conference: You should have been contacted with details of your accommodation.

The information on this page is intended to help others who wish to attend the conference to find a place to stay. The options are listed in approximate order of price, from least to most expensive.


Katarinahjemmet Guest House

An inexpensive, pleasant guest house attached to a convent. About 20 minutes walk from the conference venue. Minimum stay of two nights. No need to be Catholic or female to stay here.

Haraldsheim hostel

The only official youth hostel in Oslo. Not very centrally located, but not far from a T-Bane (Metro) station, on a line that goes directly to the Blindern campus.


Perminalen has private rooms and beds in shared dorms. It used to be for military personnel on leave. It is right in the centre of town.

Short stay apartments

Oslo Apartments

These are for stays of three nights or more. For more than one person sharing these might be cheaper than a hotel.


Coch's Pensjonat

A fairly cheap place to stay, in a nice part of the town centre.

Thon Hotels

Another possibility is a room at one of the Thon hotels. Thon is a big Norwegian hotel chain which has several branches in central Oslo.

Of their budget hotels in Oslo, the best location is probably the Thon Munch, right in the centre of town and convenient for a tram ride to the Blindern campus.

The Thon Astoria is also very central.

The Thon Spectrum is in a convenient, but somewhat down-at-heel part of the town centre, near the central railway station.

The Thon Gyldenløve is not a budget hotel, but is conveniently located in the west end of the city centre, and it is pleasant inside.

Best Western Kampen Apartment Hotell

Not central, but close to the t-bane (tube) and in a nice part of east Oslo.

Comfort Hotel Express

Very central. Said to be good.
