Everyone registered to a regular study program at NMBU, starting at Ås at the beginning of the autumn semester will, if at all possible, be guaranteed a room in the Pentagon during their first year of study.
Students who start their first year of study in Ås midway through a semester can only reserve a room if they pay rent from the beginning of the semester.
SiÅs and StS make a priority list each year for students not in their first year of study.
SiÅs will, as far as it is practically possible, comply with students' requests about choice of room and shared apartments.
The housing office allocates rooms between the 1st June and the 10th August.

5. Allocation of couple- and family apartments.
Couple apartments are prioritized for couples without children. If both are registered to a regular study program at NUMB, their study credits will be combined. If there are equal scores, the priority will be determined by a draw. Rental agreements are prioritized to those with the most study credits.
Family apartments are for students with children. If both parents are registered to a regular program of study at NMBU, their study credits will be combined. If there are equal scores, the number of children is taken into consideration. To ensure equality, single parents are given priority. Rental agreements are prioritized to those with the most study credits.
Students on parental leave are entitled to live in their family apartment during the leave period, but no longer than the maxium period of residence. See point 2.6 above.
