The numbers are falling because students either move into student housing or find housing on the private market.
The leader of the Norwegian student organization, Tuva Todnem Lund, says she is concerned with the fact that more than 10,000 students are still waiting for student housing.
“These students must and look for housing, often in an unknown city, instead of being able to take part in the start of studies. We need more student housing to be built now to prevent such queues in the years to come,” Lund said.
Minister of Research and Higher Education Henrik Asheim (H) stated that student housing is being built around the country – and that more will be built.
