Hi Christine,

With my experience its definitely not very easy to find an apartment or shared accomodation in Oslo.
The rents range between 5000 - 10000 or way more depends on what you need and where you want.
To find appartments finn.no is the best site as far as I know.

Hi Vivek!

Thanks a lot for your help ;)

any time friends!!

Finding property in Oslo to rent is quite simple. Like jobs, properties are all listed on FINN.NO. This website alone covers all listings by local estate agents and private people.

1 bedroom flats in central Oslo go for anywhere from 12k to 15k for a relatively standard finish flat, both furnished and unfurnished.

Estate agents tend to carry out credit checks, private landlords tend to ask for references. Deposit is usually 3 months rent kept in a joint bank account which is not accessible by either party until the end of the tenancy and both parties have agreed the property and contents is ok, or any deductions agreed by both parties.

A consumers right portal with alot of useful information and standard tenancy agreements often used by private landlords.

Thanks for your contribution Knut!;)

No problem. :)

I did forget to mention one thing which I found a little confusing. Apartments/houses are advertised as per useable rooms, and not amount of bedrooms. i.e A 2 room apartment would constitute 1 bedroom, 1 kitchen/living room and a bathroom. A 1 room apartment will not have separate sleeping area from the living area.

Here is a direct link on finn.no on appartments and house for rent in Oslo.
Its all in norwegian, but you can see pictures of the appartments and see what they cost.
1 euro = 8 kroners.
So just devide the cost with 8.

Hi, i need a studio apartment in Oslo, please contact me if you have any offer

Hi Vykonus!

I suggest you post an advert in the Oslo housing section.
It might help.

Hi, I've cheked out FINN.NO as you suggest but can't seem to find a translate to english option... is it only in Norwegan?

If you use google chrome, it has an auto translate option. If you're using a different browser without the option, here's a link to the Oslo rental browsing page.

finn.no/finn/realestate/lettings/result?areaId=20061

Alternatively, use something like google translate for the various drop down menu's and links.

If so please drop me a mail to : [email protected]

@ venu818: If you are looking for an accommodation, please feel free to post an advert in the section flats for rent in Oslo :)

Go to

There is also a fb group that is all about renting but the admin here will not allow me to write it.  it is much more active over there since it is linked to your fb account.
