No, SiØ only insures the buildings. We are unable to insure your personal belongings. You will have to do this yourself by taking out contents insurance. The National Union of Students in Norway offers its own student insurance package, which is tailormade for students and everything you need for a secure student life at a student-friendly price. The package includes contents, travel and accident cover, and you can also take out disability and life insurance.
You must have received your username and password from the university college. If you are having problems connecting a device to the wireless network, you can contact Østfold University College’s IT Help Service.
IT Operations accepts the temporary use of private wireless access points on the condition that these use channels 1, 6 or 11 in the 2.4Ghz band (IEEE 802111g) or any channel in the 5Ghz band.
If you use other channels, you will weaken the Eduroam wireless network.
