This page lists a few places to eat in Oslo. (Many thanks to our resident pub and dining expert for providing this list.)
Note that the notion of a ‘cheap eat’ is relative to the generally exorbitant prices in Oslo.
On the 15th June we will be dining at Olympen. There are still a few places for non-speakers. If you are interested, please contact us.

There are several places to eat, including, from nearest to furthest:
The cafe on the ground floor of Niels Trechow hus, just by the entrance to the conference venue (you get there by turning left when you go in, instead of right). Mainly cold food: expensive sandwiches, cakes and coffee.
Dana Bakeri. A small independent cafe just off the campus, under the tracks at the Forskningsparken metro station, three minutes from the conference venue. The best and cheapest food anywhere near campus: big sandwiches for 30 Kr, børek (savoury Turkish pastries) for 20 Kr and a plate of chicken and rice for 50 Kr.
The main refectory. Upstairs in the Frederikke building on the main square of the campus, less than five minutes’ walk from the conference venue. Standard cafeteria fare.
The cafe in the library building, Georg Sverdrups hus. Mainly cold food. Pleasant surroundings.
