The Professorboligen is located at the University of Oslo's downtown campus. The address is Karl Johans Gate, 47. See this map for further details:
The Professorboligen is easily accessible by train and T-Bane. It is located very close to the 'Nationaltheatret' T-Bane stop. See this link for more information about the T-Bane (Metro).
Additional meetings might take place at the University of Oslo's campus at Blindern, and the OsloMet downtown campus on Friday. More detailed information about the precise location of these meetings will be provided shortly.
NB! If you arrive at the Gardermoen airport we strongly recommend that you take the train (either airport express train or regular train) to Oslo. Taxi is very expensive (could cost more than 100 Euro) and will take longer.
Please note that you need to purchase tickets for busses and trams in Oslo in advance. You will find all travel information and real-time info at Ruter.
Tickets for Oslo travel can be purchased most easily via the Ruter app or at Oslo Visitor Centre at Oslo Central Station, Ruter's Customer Service Centre, in most Narvesen and 7-Eleven shops, from ticket machines at metro stations etc. Please note that our meeting venue is downtown, and walking distance from both the Central Railway Station and the Nationalteateret station where all trains and metros stop.
Single tickets are available on the buses and ferries, but are more expensive than tickets bought in advance. For information about Public Transport in Oslo, including the ticket and price system, please consult the Visit Oslo website.
