  • From the Airports
    • From Oslo Airport Gardermoen (recomended)

      • The recommended way of getting to the city center is by the Airport Express Train to the "Oslo Central Station". This is a 20 minutes ride and costs 160 NOK (student fee 80 NOK).
      • Alternatives:
        • Local Trains 30 minutes, 85 NOK. Not as frequent departures as the Airport Express Train. Check the information desk for departure times.
        • Taxi: most taxi companies have a fixed price (approximately 600-800 NOK) to the city center. Ask the driver before entering the car.
        • Bus (Flybuss Ekspressen): Specially if you stay at hotel Gyldenløve then it will be a good alternative to take the bus F1-Majorstuen to the end station (160 NOK, 1h).
    • From Torp Airport
      • Take the bus directly to Oslo (approx 2h), or take the bus to Sandefjord and a train from Sandefjord to Oslo. Ask at the information desk for time tables.
