Troubles with the WI-FI connection or the wired network

WI-FI: EDUROAM

If you experience problems with your connection, please try the following before you contact us:
  1. Check if your own computer works in your room.
  2. Check if your neighbors computer works in your neighbours room. 
  3. Check if your own computer works in you neighbours room.
  4. Check if your neighbors computer works in your room. 

If at least one computer works in one of the rooms, then it's not a network problem and you must debug your computer.


WI-FI: Contact it-vakt if the problem persists.
If the wired network does not respond, report error in unialltid. The caretaker will come and check  if the outlet receives signals.


IT operations have accepted temporary use of private wireless access points, under the condition that they are used on Channel 1.6 or 11 on the 2.4Ghz band (IEEE 802111g) or anywhere on the 5Ghz band.
Use of other channels will weaken the Eduroam wireless network.

 
What do you do if you experience bothersome noise from other residents?

Have in mind that you live with other students and therefore must accept noise to some extent. However - according to Norwegian law, your neighbour is not allowed to disturb the general peace and order, hence unnecessary noise.

The house rules reads:
Tenants should at all times respect other people’s need for peace and quiet. It must be quiet after 23:00 on weekdays and 24:00 on days before Sundays/holidays in the housings and on the premises in general. Tenants are responsible for guests and must call for assistance if they are unable to control them. SiØ can require them to leave the premises.
This rule is not only SIØ's, but it is also legislated in the constitution § 3.


SECURITAS: TLF (+47) 907 84 853 
POLICE: 02800



Here is what you can do if you experience noise:
  1. Talk to your neighbor and try to find a solution together. This will often be the best solution as it promotes a good environment for all parts.
  2. Call Securitas: (+47) 907 84 853. (Remember to tell them that you're calling from Remmen)
  3. Send a complaint to us, siost@hiof.no, and describe the incident with involved parties.
Report inquiry

If you notice errors or defects in your room or collective, you must report it in unialltid. The caretaker will receive the message and fix the problem. This can be anything from light bulbs, heating cables, cranes, ovens etc.

This is what you do:
  • Log in to your site
  • On the first page, choose "Inquiry"
  • Describe the problem

NOTE: If you allow the caretaker to fix the problem without you being present, check the "godtar innlåsing" box. If this is not OK, call Magne (+47 90671411) to arrange a time that works for both.
This only applies to inquiries in your own private room.




Do you have other questions that do not concern physical things in your home, but contract, student card, codes and other general questions, please send it to siost@hiof.no.
