Housing and Meals

SOPP, the student services group, provides student housing for the college. The Lillehammer campus has a total of 7 dormitories. Most of these dormitories are not on campus, but all are served by city buses. Prices vary based on size, resources, and amenities included in the housing. Internet access is included in rent.

Dinner cards (each valid for ten meals) are sold for SOPP’s cafeteria. Dinner is served Monday-Thursday from 1-4:30 pm and Friday from 12-3:30 pm, and the menu varies from day to day. The Hilde coffee bar is open from 8am-3:30pm Monday-Thursday (and 8am-2:30pm Friday). The coffee bar sells mainly coffee, tea, juice, and snacks such as fruit, cakes, and chocolate. All meals on weekends and before or after cafeteria hours are the responsibility of the student. Many of the dorms have their own kitchens, and recipes (in Norwegian) are available at the university’s website.
