The Norwegian School of Economics administration facilitates international students regarding accommodations. Sammen, the student welfare organization in Bergen, will provide housing for you as an international student accepted into the MSc programme. The housing assurance does not apply to Norwegian citizens due to capacity. As for locals, they are advised to look for an off-campus residence. 

Double-check all criteria with UDI beforehand if you intend to bring a family. Keep in mind that Sammen's housing guarantee does not cover accommodation for families.


The University offers only one undergraduate program in economics and business administration, which is constantly the first choice for students wanting to learn business in Norway. NHHs global and national rankings are as follows.
