See Skyss' Travel Planner to see how to get here.

Bicycle parking can be found in front of the building, or in the bicycle storage room in the basement. Bicycles must be marked with a valid sticker which can be found at your servicesenter. The sticker is valid for one year at a time and must be renewed every year, this is to have control over which bicycles are left behind and which bicycles are in use. Unmarked bicycles are removed.

Common area
Sammen Cleaning will wash the stairs and corridors. The residents themselves are responsible for keeping toilet/bathroom and kitchens clean.

Common room
In the basement of Alrek you will find the common room with sofas and TV. This can be used by all residents. The common room is open until 23.00 on Sunday to Thursday, and at 24.00 on Friday and Saturday. 

The electricity is charged together with the rent. 

All garbage is thrown in containers at the front of the building. Find your nearest glas and metal recycling station here.

The laundry is located in the basement of the D-section of the building. Take the elevator to floor 0 and follow the corridor to the right. Read more about laundries here.

You can find the mail room at the entrance. 

Alrek has designated places for residents' parking. Read more about rules and how to book parking here.

Rooftop terrace
Alrek has three larger terraces. One at the fifth floor and two at the seventh. These are open to all residents. Seventh floor has a beautiful view of Bergen and is often used for barbecuing. Pay attention to those living in the seventh.

The sauna can be switched on at any time. Anyone who uses it is responsible for turning it off after use and leaving the place clean and tidy.

Storage of furniture
Unfortunately, we do not have the opportunity to store furniture that you do not want to use. You can keep this somewhere else, but we note that when you move out all furniture must be returned (missing will be billed). Everything you have bought yourself must also be removed when moving out. Mirrors glued to doors etc will be removed at the expense of the resident.

Storage room
Storage rooms can be found in the attic above the 5th floor (those on the 7th floor have storage rooms on the 8th floor). You can freely choose a free storage, regardless of numbering. Rooms must be locked with your own lock and marked with name, room number and current semester. It is not recommended to store valuable items in the storage, as storage is at your own risk.

NB! Two accommodations share one storage. The booth must be emptied when you move out.

Table tennis
The table tennis is in the basement outside the laundry. You can borrow the racket and ball from TU. 

Among the goodies TU has been behind so far is the music room, sauna, piano room and table tennis. They also arrange various social events a couple of times during the semester.
