The other one, Komsa, is about ten minutes walk from Finnmark University College, and also ten minutes walk from the town centre. Komsa is newer than Nyland, and is situated nearby a popular outside activities area.
As a new resident in one of our student towns, you have a responsibility to familiarize yourself with housing rules, such as fire instructions, use of public areas and cleaning routines. The rules and routines are established to ensure everyone a healthy, secure and nice living environment.
Please address any questions you might have related to housing and your living quarters to the residence secretary in our housing administration.
For your service we have hired some of our tenants as resident assistants. The assistants form a network of student contacts at the student dormitories. They can answer any questions you may have about student living conditions and help you solve problems or conflicts. They can also be at your service when you have any questions related to your need as a tenant. If they can’t help you themselves, they will help you get in contact with someone who can. Each block is assigned to an assistant who will contact you soon after you have moved in.
The local newspaper in Alta, Altaposten, runs ads for different types of accommodation. The Student Welfare Organisation also runs a service, which gives information on accommodation available on the private market. The best time to make enquiries is just before the start of the term when the organisation has usually received information from those wishing to rent out accommodation. If you haven't managed to find accommodation before the start of the term, then phone the Student Welfare Organisation, and they will give you some advice on how to find a temporary sollution.
